Would it be the same on the 5.7. If so I have two in the garden, going for spares.

To be honest, I don't know what's on them and it's too dark outside now. I can have a look tomorrow and see if they look like the one you show in the link. It might be good to know if they are interchangeable also?

Well, It looks the same to me but as I said before, it would be good to know if they are the same or at least interchangeable.

I've got two complete engines and two complete alpha 1 drives, not had any interest to buy them so I'll strip them for parts.

I'll get a price for postage on Monday and let you know. I guess it's better if I test it first? From what I have found out, it simply gives a ground connection to the ignition to cause a stutter in the engine, allowing reduced pressure on the gearing and making it easier to come out of gear. I have also read that this switch can function but be erratic, I'll check for this also.

Let me know if it will help you out.

Peter

Switch checks out fine. Will let you know when I get a postage price later today.

I guess it's not what you need. No problem.
