They are not to hard to rebuild but your limited to the times you can open the case due to the tabs will break off. I done one and am doing a second next week.

Mac,

What about those guys at Lock Haven? I know they do quite a lot of the old gauges.

Keystone Instruments had some old mag switches for sale at Blakesburg Iowa fly in. They looked like they did very nice work.
