I tried to modify my dual diaphram brake booster rod but had no luck. I think I ground off too much material so the switch won't turn on the brake lights and it's loose after tightening the bolt. I have a couple questions on what to do next.

First, should I just mount another switch on a metal plate and use it, I bought a '79 F250 brake switch.

Second, should I try to replace the brake pedal rod to the booster?

Third, Can I use the one that connects to the cruise control?

In the pic it's the white switch with the clear connector at the very top of the brake pedal.

Thanks,

I'm going through this right now. the cruise switch works backwards of what you'll need. BUT I'm told the later model XJs have a brake switch that fits in the cruise switch spot. that's my plan, I just haven't gotten to a junkyard yet. :thumbsup:
