Turn signal switch

When putting my steering column back together i discovered i have the wrong turn signal switch. A little time with professor google seems to indicate i have a boyne switch and i should have a delco. The one i got came from summit and by their text is correct. I read on a corvair site that, to that author, no camaros were known with the boyne switch, however some firebirds got them. The housing section that differs between the two switches is interchangeable. Apparently the only thing different is the lever and 4way button locations in the housing section. I also apparently have a top bearing for a column shift car.
That doesnt appear to matter either. I had to put in a 69 conversion bearing i got from Heartbeat City as mine was shot. The upper seems ok though. After you look at this thing long enough it starts to make sense. Gotta wonder if they ever worked as advertised.

Orange Boyne - aka "BPC" verses White Delco.
One of the rare parts GM bought that was NOT interchangeable without changes.
The other popular part falling into this category is cigarette lighters.

Boyne switches were in most full sized Chevrolet's (Impala and Chevelle) with tilt steering and some Nova Chevy II without tilt, most Pontiac's with tilt and non tilt including the Firebird that is until Firebird production ended at Lordstown and moved to Norwood, then they used the A/C Delco white part. Well most of the time

Re: Turn signal switch

Well, if anybody needs one of these fitted for the AAW upgrade kit, or post 68 i guess let me know. This thing is destined to be a drawer dust collector here.

Re: Turn signal switch

I got a delco style switch. I need the one with the low square hole for the 4way flasher. I got BDW part # S3245. I found it in a Advance Auto store. After looking at too many pages and ads it seemed to me that most of these switches are made in a few molds and marketed however. Prices vary. You can see the difference between them in the pics. The delco version marketed by AAW, according to Summit, needs the higher round hole. The switch i got has the light mount for a automatic column setup that unscrews. Its an obvious addition as the grey wire isnt run as part of the ribbon. It has an adapter to take it back to a 67 connector but nothing to match up to AAW’s upgrade harness so that has to be swapped. This was the first one i found local enough to go and fit up to my parts.
