Question
I have a US 1979 midget, brake fluid is leaking out of the electric switch on the 5 way union. I can not seem to locate a new one or a rebuild kit. can you help?

Answer
Hi James

These switches are available from Moss Motors for $7.95 - see part number 46 in this diagram:

Don't forget that the brakes may need bleeding after you have replaced the switch.
