Re: YJ Booster upgrade - Now no tail lights...
There is no flag on this set-up. The switch is mounted over the booster rod end. The booster rod has a flat spot cut at about a 60* angle, where the switch base rests. The pivot pin goes through the switch and booster end with a bolt. The bolt is attached to the brake pedal.
At first, I had thought the the change in angle when you depress the brake pedal triggers the switch, but now I think it is the "slop" in the pin/booster end assmbly.
The switch works fine when I force it with my hand to open up.
My '95 booster end had a 1/2" hole in the booster end. I had to drill this to 5/8" to fit the bushing. 5/8" is about 0.020" smaller than my '88 booster end. It was a pretty tight fit with the new booster, so I think that may by my problem - no slop...
I'll try wallowing out the hole a little bit and keep you guys posted.
