Those hydraulic pressure switches are notorious for giving up. I don't know if there is a brake light switch and bracket that would bolt onto the pedal assembly from a C-body.

BUT

I do know it took about 20 minutes contorted under the dash with a piece of steel scrap and a '70s GM brake light switch to get one working in my Plymouth. It worked well enough that I did the same in my Chrysler before I put the dashboard back together :D

Good luck!

I mounted a 1962 Chrysler brake pedal switch in my 60 Chrysler. 62 is the first year for the pedal switch on full sized Mopars. I had to make a small bracket and mounted it so that the switch bottoms out against the knuckle where the pedal assembly pivots at the brake push rod to the master cyl.

Here`s an old thread showing how I made up mine. http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=60202&...

This is my brake light switch (originally made for the AutoPilot, now another switch is mounted as a twin, one for AutoPilot and the other one for the brake light and ABL

Tired of changing hydraulic switches. Has anyone changed there's? Other than making my own mounting bracket, is there something I could adapt from a C Body?
Thanks in advance,
Steve


Yes, a braket is easy to fabricate but these were popular already back in the day, so there are always some on ebay:
