    I tried that with a cheapo meter couldn't read any ohms or continuity when I moved the switch

    I would never sell something if there was any chance it wasn't going to work

    It only closes the circuit at a certain position. Spray some contact cleaner that is safe for plastics to clean the contacts. My personal favorite is DeOxIt.

      If somebody has a good original pin, I would be willing to create a CAD model for 3D printing. It could also be machined out of nylon. There are several places online that will print or machine one for you. I could print them on my FDM, but I think STL would be more robust.

      That is assuming there are enough folks wanting plastic. I'm happy with my SS carb stud. Easy to install, and fairly certain it would pop out easy enough in an accident if the column collapsed.

        I'd be interested in a good nylon replacement.
