Default 1948 International KB1 Truck

Got new buttons for the panel, gas, choke and lights. The light button/switch was replaced by a more modern one. Should I find an original, how hard are they to work on? If they don't work are they toast?
Have the button for it but need the switch.

Been a while but if I remember correctly there are metal tabs that hold a bakelite board with the wiring connections attached to it. Bend the tabs back ,remove bakelite, clean connections and reassemble. Should not be too hard to find one. I have one on a KB-5 outback of the shop.
Another idea would be to use your knob on the new switch if possible.

^ Yup. standard automotive design from the period. Open them up, clean the surfaces and grease the guts. Also solder the flags to the rivets to eliminate the resistance point that heats up and burns the fiber plate. They'll be good for another 50 years.
