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.
In reality it will be cheaper and easier to pick up another used 022 Lionel Switch.
Most times it's easier to pick up a good used switch, than find the parts and fix the switch. Unless this switch means something special to you, look around for a used 022.
Really these are 5165 switches 072 but the gut are the same inside so I figured I put 022 for every one knows what they are. But if some one has any idea to fix .
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.
Grzyboski has new, old stock switch motors.
I've seen them at their booth at York, and listed on Ebay.
You could try calling them to see if they will sell them direct from the store.
I had a wire burn-out on me with the O gauge 031 equivelant of that switch, so be careful when using those.
Is there a way I can put some copper to fill in the missing area to make the connection
