Turn Signal Switch Actuating Cam


Hello,

 

I am having a heck of time finding a turn signal actuating cam for my 1968 Beaumont, it seems to be very unique!

Please see the enclosed picture, the turn signal actually has to fit in the middle of it. I have tried a Dorman one for a Ford which didn't fit.

Should be the same as 67/68 Chevelle (with or without tilt?)

Your turn signal switch is broken. The cancelling arms are broken off of one end. Your turn signal wont cancel when turning right. Is it the turn signal switch you are looking for, or the cam that also is the horn contact?

Yes the top prong is broken that's why I need a new one,the one from Chevelle is different if you look closely at my pic you can see it actually has two slots where the turn signal sits in?

Maybe it's a Boyne switch?

From below article in Hemmings

"Finally, on mid-'60s mid-size and full-size GM cars, there were two switches used from two different manufacturers.

Full-size vehicles had a white plastic-based switch made by Delco and a red plastic-based switch made by Boyne.

The mid-size cars used a different white Delco-type switch or a blue/green Boyne-type switch."

Ya,  i would highly recomend doing a complete change over to the Delco switch, and get rid of the piece of crap Boyne one.

If you are into seaching the internet, there was a very VERY good article on how to do it and it is easy,  it was on a Canadian corvair website called Corvair Kid or something like that

I did the complete change over on my 67 beaumont daily driver after breaking neumerous boyne ones and having constant problems finding correct replacement C shaped cams and having them not cancel properly.

the delco ones are easy to use,  parts are readily avail, and the same delco switch was used extensively on 67-72 chevy trucks, and they are everywhere for parts

Thanks, I can't believe how many different types of switches there are. I found the corvair kid site and it looks like I have the Boyne type, signal lights don't work now either so I don't know if I shorted something out will check the fuse box. I think I will attempt the swap since I still have months before I can drive it again.

If you've got a service manual it should outline how to change the signal switch. I've changed a few in my 1970 cars (and removed a few from cars in the junk-yards), it's pretty easy. Just be patient.

Thanks for the help, I have a 1968 service manual but it doesn't seem as complete as the pictures you guys posted, just waiting for parts from the states now and will give it a try.
