Title: 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville Pull Down Motor Limit Switch
Post by: Caddymac49h on December 29, 2017, 05:26:10 PM
Hello

I am looking for some help/direction on overcoming an issue that I am having with a limit switch on a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville. I need to know if anyone knows where I might be able to find one or if maybe there is an alternative that will work.
Thanks for your help in advance,
Rick

Hello Rick,
     I purchased one of those micro switches a few years back for my 57 Seville. The company’s name is Radwell international in Lumberton nj . I have my old one in my deck at work
.  There was a number On the switch that  was very helpful . They had the exact same switch in stock .  I hope this helps. As I recall the switch was under the price of the minimum order of 50.00 at that point I was just glad to get the switch .!

I came here looking for one of these as well. Looks like it is still available. Thank you for the information. Any modifications needed to make it fit or is it a direct replacement?

I bought my 1TB1-3 from Zoro Tools.  It is a direct replacement and is currently $40.
