Figure 3-6 Maintaining the Key Switch Assembly switch, but not so close that the actuator can make it click twice when the key is turned.

11. Release the actuator and try turning the key to make sure that this is the correct setting. Tighten the screws on the switch when the distance is correct.

12. Put the key switch assembly back on the dashboard. Install the dashboard as described in the section Installing the Dashboard.

Tightening the Screw in the Key Switch Assembly Actuator

1. Remove the dashboard. Follow the procedure in the section Removing the Dashboard.

2. Position the actuator on the shaft so that it lines up with the roller on the switch. Tighten the socket-head screw on the actuator with a 5/32-inch Allen head wrench so the actuator does not rotate anymore.

3. When the actuator is against the case opposite the switch, the key should be straight up and down. If the key isn't straight up and down, loosen the screw on the actuator. Turn the key until it is straight up and down. Tighten the screw on the actuator to hold it in place on the shaft.

4. Now turn the key so the actuator is against the case on the same side as the switch. Release the key, hold the actuator against the switch, and adjust the position of the switch. The switch must be close enough so that the actuator engages the switch, but not so close that the actuator can make it click twice when the key is turned.

5. Release the actuator and try turning the key to make sure that this is the correct setting. Tighten the screws on the switch when the distance is correct.

6. Install the dashboard as described in the section Installing the Dashboard.

Replacing the Switch on the Key Switch Assembly

The key switch assembly is shown in Figure 3-6.

1. Remove the dashboard. Follow the procedure in the section Removing the Dashboard.

2. Take the key switch off the dashboard by removing the two carriage bolts and locknuts.

3. Remove the two Phillips-head screws that hold the snap-action switch on the key switch assembly. Take off the switch. Take the harness off the switch.

4. Install the switch on the assembly, but do not tighten the screws. The roller on the switch should be facing in towards the brass switch actuator.

5. When the brass actuator is against the case opposite the switch, the key should be straight up and down. If the key isn't straight up and down, loosen the screw on the actuator. Turn the key until it is straight up and down. Tighten the screw on the actuator to hold it in place on the shaft.

6. Now turn the key so the actuator is against the case on the same side as the switch. Release the key and hold the actuator against the switch with your hand. Adjust the position of the switch. The switch must be close enough so that the actuator engages the switch, but not so close that the actuator can make it click twice when the key is turned.

7. Release the actuator and turn the key to make sure that this is the correct setting. Tighten the screws on the switch when the distance is correct.

8. Put the harness on the new switch. The black wire must connect to the C (or COM) terminal, and the white wire must connect to the NO terminal.
