Turn Signal Switch

I just completed installing a SECOND Scott Drake Turn Signal Switch. The first one would not activate the Hazard lights. The second one would not activate the Brake Lights. I was able to confirm internal maladies on BOTH switches.
In a previous post Scott Benke (West Coast Classic Cougar) had recommended a switch manufactured by Sheemor (made in the USA) which I ordered today. I'll have it next week. (And it cost LESS than the Scott Drake unit.)
File this info for future use in case the need arises.

Are you contacting Scott Drake about the faulty switches? They should refund your money.

I bought them through NPD, but I'm going to mail them to Scott Drake's business, and express my disappointment with their quality control.

If you want it I’ll send you NPD’s owner’s email address. Rick and I had quite a discussion a few years back about Drake’s lack of quality control.

NPD would definitely take care of you, as they back EVERYTHING they sell.

Scott Drake sold the business several years ago. No longer run by a passionate hobbyist, it is now owned and operated by a faceless corporation.

Where did you order the Sheemor one from?

Dominic;
WCCC (West Coast Classic Cougar).
If they're out of stock, call Sheemor direct.
