Brewer Classic Lincoln is the national rebuilder of these switches which are critical to the function of the 1964- 1967 top system. We maintain a significant stock of Upper Back Panel Limit Switches for both Lincolns and Thunderbirds, and can rebuild a switch for you and get it shipped within days. We have also reproduced the necessary replacement parts, which include the contact springs, contacts, center spindle (in stainless steel), both end caps (in aircraft aluminum) and center spindle spring. We can also provide replacements for complete wire harness/body assemblies out of our extensive inventory.
Thunderbird upper back panel limit switches can be provided using Lincoln switch cores, modified using the factory specified instructions. For show originality, original Thunderbird upper back panel limit switches (with the three black plugs and shorter wire harness) are available upon request.
Normal rebuild service includes complete cleaning and renovation of ALL contact surfaces, cleaning of switch housings and wire harnesses, replacement of harness electrical tape as necessary, replacement of internal parts as necessary (additional charges will apply), reassembly and testing. Normal turnaround is 24 hours.
We provide bulk rebuild services to several of the primary Lincoln and Thunderbird parts vendors and top specialists. If you need multiple switches rebuilt, please contact us regarding your needs and vendor pricing.
If you decide to attempt rebuild of your switch, please be aware that the internal switch components will fly apart once you unscrew the nuts from the switch body. Make sure to place the switch in a plastic bag before taking off the nuts. This will at least keep you from losing these tiny and difficult to replace components. After having opened the switch, if you decide to have us rebuild it, there is no additional charge for rebuilding disassembled switches unless parts have gone missing.
Most switches are fully rebuildable, requiring minimal part replacement.
Basic switch rebuild price is $195 (no parts replaced).
Internal components which might need to be replaced are available on our store.
