No problem, I should have been clearer; eg "pressure-operated brake 
light switch".  I think it was one of the few times I forgot to include
my "signature" at the bottom of the message, which specifies that I have
a 66 B and would have helped!  I was trying to differentiate between the
pressure and mechanical brake light switches and ended up confusing them
anyway, ironic...

OK, thanks for the advice!!  I'll file away the information on the
pressure differential switch in my brain as well :)

And I'll leave the rest of the brake line fittings alone.
