I am looking to make my Willys road worthy and one of the many things required will be turn signals.
I started looking on-line and was amazed by the wide variety of signal switches available, and the wide range in price as well.

While I do not want to buy junk just because it is cheap, I also have no desire to shell out too much for a mechanism I would rather not install all together (but I know I must!).

Does any one have a suggestion on ones that work and have some quality or at least ones to avoid?
:lol:

I have one that is new-in-the-box, that I've had for a few years. I was just thinking about putting it on e-bay... If you are interested I can send pics. It is a seven wire unit with the hazard flasher pull-out knob and has the blinking light inside the case.

My last wagon (51) I used a late model tilt GM steering column and it working nicely and performed the functions it should. But this time I want to retain the '62 Steering wheel and column...that center button just has to be saved. Not knowing if 62 had signals or not, I will keep what I get. One issue I have however is safety...The original steering shaft is like a spear during an accident...and would like something that would collapse other than my chest... I plan on a three point seat-belt.
