Default Small Switch for Throttle?

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a small switch that would fit in my throttle? Iíd like to put one there for my smoke system on/off.

Thanks in advance.

Toggle or pushbutton? Momentary or maintained? Current rating?

This is what you want. It's a miniature C&K momentary action SPDT switch that comes with an optional push-on black plastic button. If you email me (jdubner@yahoo.com) I'll try to look up the part number.

Default Switch

I installed one in the standard quadrant . Wires go down a thin square brass tube thatís epoxied on the lever . I use it for the PTT .

Default Try this...

I had the same quadrant in my RV-8 and I found a switch that fits perfectly. They came in sets of two so I have one left over. PM your address and I'll send it to you.
