the turn signals on this 53 have been jammed since we got the car. so today was a good time to find out why. got the wheel off and find that the press on keeper for the spring and canceling leavers has popped off. and that broke on of the trips. first time I have been into one of these, they are all pot medal. we are going to try to fix it with it's own broken parts. looks like the switch it's self if OK. but we get it back together it may not cancel one direction. so if anyone had a idea were we might locate one I'm all ears

not a lot you can do with broken pot. from looking into the rest of it my guess is they just peaned over the top on a washer to hold the arms in place. but with everything dropped down into it you could not ever move the leaver. we got it to hold back together and lock in to flash but with that small flag missing on the bottom it will not cancel to the left. but I'm hoping that it will at least flash till I find another canceling unit
