hi guys picked up the above at an auction & the amperage switch is stuck. how is the best way of getting it working again?:confused::confused::confused:

I would say pull off the case and make sure the contacts aren't welded first. Then a bit of lubricant down the switch shaft should do the trick.

THANKS old goat! i was thinking along the same line, just hope none of the contacts are welded.can't even work on it due to the rain. my shop is so full of junk that i can't get it in the door.:wave::wave::wave:

try pushing the selector in a little when turning. Mine has to be pushed in before it will turn. a little lubrication wont hurt either.
