58 Bugeye Ignition/Light Switch

Not open for further replies.


Freshman Member
I am trying to take the black knob and tumbler out of my ignition switch but it doesn't want to come apart. Does pushing the detent in the black light knob allow the knob to come off or is that detent for the tumbler. Also I can't feel a detent in the hole back in the metal back portion of the switch.
thabks for any help.
