I have a switch that was not clicking back and forth all the way so I took apart oiled and grease it and still was not working right. So i took it apart agacommand looked at it closer and on the plate where it slides back and forth on the cooper is worn ofdiss there a way to fix this or do I need to find a new Switch.
I've fixed all sorts of these switches, including riveting stuff in as appropriate. I have replaced a number of contact boards, but it requires the two rivets and the means to set them to put a new contact board on.
Having had a similar problem, and almost every other problem I have heard of, I did surgery and solder fillings which worked for awhile. I finally bought another motor from Lionel for $40-50? and cured the problem.
