Ok - so I finally re-aquired this favorite from my childhood ... the battery operated toy garbage truck from Child Guidance....and have been refurbishing it all week.



At this point I am trying to get the scoop to function - I know the motor and lights work as I have hoit wired a battery to them but can't get it to operate thru the switch. I think I need a new switch.

Below are links to some photos of what I am lookingh for - any idea where I can pick up one of these toggles?

Don't you have bigger toys to play with :bleh: . That's a simple three pole center off switch. You should be able to find something at Radio Shack, though it won't be the same size. I had a set of their micro-switches for my mirror controls in the Sterling, though I doubt you remember that little panel...

It's all about the toys!

Aside from that - this toy sells , regulairly, for like $700 on ebay - I found mine at a swap meet for $15! This is definately worth my time...lol
