I was having some physical problems with my light
switch coming apart on my 1975 Midget. It's the generic
three position paddle switch.
Now that it's fixed, I am spending a lot more time
noticing it and thinking about it. One thing I do notice
now is that it runs very hot. Nothing noticeable
on the front, but if I put my finger up behind the
dash parts of the switch body are uncomfortably
hot. The electrical tape I used to seal the job
is a little warm and soft.
Is this normal for this type of switch? Can anyone
verify theirs as running hot or cold?
