I'm wondering where everyone gets there nice switches. Were do you get those nice labeled switches from. I've looked on the internet and i looked through the archives but i couldn't really find any good information. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Get them from the dealer. I called one dealer and got a switch and it ended up being the wrong cover. I sent him a picture of the covers that I had and they sent me just the cover part. If I remember correctly it was around $20 for a MC switch. It only had fill and empty on it compared to the factory ones that also stated port/ stbd.
the switches and the covers can be bought seperately. the switches are all Carlingsworth I believe. I bought both at the MC dealer. I believe the DPDT switches were $18 each and the covers were $2 each. I was able to get "port" and "Starboard" but couldn't find "front" or "center"
The switches I bought from the MC dealer for my old boat were DPST. I know they use impeller pumps in a lot of their boats, so they either use relays or they also have a DPDT switch. The ones they had when I went there said Ballast or Rear Ballast.
