Manual trans guys I found a good source for a 2 step wobble switch

After looking for a cheap or used jake brake switch, and not having much luck. I found the industry nomenclature for these things is "wobble switch". May not be the best option, but found this one on Ebay. Many to choose from!

Also Pacbrake has one that's available at your local truck parts store for around 35$

Huh, never thought of that to use---I assume your using the arm of the clutch pedal to activate it?. We have them at work (Cummins) on the shelf---well, last I knew anyhow. Wonder how expensive ours are.

what is it for, and why won't a microswitch work?

I use a micro switch. It's the size of 2 quarters and weighs maybe 2 ounces.


It's set to turn 2step on with the clutch pedal to the floor, I set the clutch airgap with the pedal on the floor. It worked good and never effected the shift. The same micro switch has been in the car since 1996.


I swapped to an auto a few years ago and now i use the clutch pedal as my line lock switch.
