Found it on eBay. Guy with screen name of 68superstockdart. Has lots of mopar parts. The switch itself was selling for $110. Got the switch and blower control for $65 ($8 shipping). Shipped right on time and got it 3 days before expected, complete with dirt and grime included. Gonna install today. NOW if it just works ;-).

Oh yea! In my previous post I had shown WOLFIE a piece that I had broken removing the cable. So, in order to keep the cable mount in the controller, I devised this method. See pics.

I think the tiny screw will work nicely. It just prevents the cable control from popping out of its place on top of the controller

Anybody know which connection (top or bottom) this black and red connects to on this blower motor switch. I lost track when I was disconnecting.
