Replacement for Leviton rotary light switch

I have a 1968 Overlander and the overhead interior lights are playing up. The lights are rectangular and contain 4 1141 bulbs. The Leviton rotary switch has 4 positions - OFF - 3 bulbs on - 1 bulb on - 4 bulbs on.

In a couple of cases, the Leviton switches have worn out and I need to replace them. Any suggestions on replacement switches and sources?

Thanks.

Mike

We have the long shank ceiling light switches, but they are not listed in our web site.

"Fast Andy" strikes again! Standard answer to any vintage part question - call Inland.

I bought my new switches from Andy and they were exactly what was needed. Fixed the problem in a jiffy!

There are 2 similar switches available. Make sure you get the long shank one. But, it is not difficult to take the Leviton switch apart clean the contacts and voila.

Check Vintage Trailer Supply. I think they have the switch your looking for at a very reasonable price.
