What is the quality of the replacement switches these days? I restored a 55 in 1996 and replaced them all without any problems. my 57 has 70k miles and has been in dry storage since 1978, tempted to run the originals if today's replacement switches are shakey, thanks!

Yea Kinda a crapshoot as far as Headlight switches. I ended up buying 3 "new replacements" from different vendors for my 55. Not real happy with the way they worked. kinda rough and tumble. ended up sourcing some old GM headlight switches at flea markets and rebuilt a good one of all the best parts from each. Been working for 7 years now. And if you figure it all the combined parts are still 67+ years old.
I would take them out clean, grease them up probably be as good as new. AS long as they are in decent shape now.
Just my 2 cents
