I’m a new member of this forum, but have been reading your posts for a while.
Last year I toke over the nice '47 2.5L Saloon from Detlef (JagDriver).
There is a list of tasks I want to do on the car during winter time.
The current small job is to change the ignition switch located on the dashboard.
It’s a Lucas 312151, and thanks to Detlef, there is already a spare part in my stock.
The faulty ignition switch has no more a mechanical rest point at the ON position,
means during driving it can happen that the ignition switch turns back and interrupt the ignition. For sure that doesn’t feels nice during driving, you know
Anyway I removed the switch and want to exchange it with the spare part. But one part of the switch, it is some kind of covering glued to the front of the barrel/lock, seems to me a little bit worn/damaged. So it needs to be restored.
I attached some photos of the litte cover to this post.
Does anyone of you know, how this cover should look like? I didn’t find any photos in our collection or on the internet that shows useful details. I found only one picture of another car’s dashboard that shows the cover of the lock, but not detailed enough …
Maybe someone of you also recognized the cover at the ignition switch as well and can publish a photo here, or give me a hint
Thanks for your help,
The lock cover
Cover placed on the lock surface
Photo from internet with another car’s dashboard showing also the cover but details not really visible…
