Turn signal switch/lever question (1967)

Here is some background on my problem... my driverside brake light wont light up when i put my pass. side blinker on. All other lights work and brake lights work fine when i dont use the blinkers.
So I did alot of searching on here and found that it would be a problem with the turn signal switch. I also found that some people said to wiggle the turn signal lever and this might help find or fix the problem.
So I was just out messing with it and the lever trick kinda worked. With my foot on the brake i put the pass. side blinker on and I could see in the mirror the brake light went out. I then pushed down a little on the lever and the brake light comes back on. Its almost as if the lever has two spot in it where it stops. If i push it all the way up...no brake light and then i pull it back down just a little and i have brake light.
So now to my question... Where do i go from here? Will i need a whole new switch or would it just be the internal part in the wheel where the lever screws into? I figured i would ask here before i pull the wheel off.

Can't answer your question without tearing it apart....I just replaced the entire switch and figured I'd eliminate future problems for less than $50..
