    Hey guys, I am replacing the turn signal switch in my '68 Town & Country. I bought the car over the winter and the switch was already removed and gone along with the hardware before I got the car. I bought a NOS switch and was told it was the correct switch. It is the orange colored switch part #2880829. Supposedly for '67-'69 C-body Saginaw built column w/out tilt/telescopic. Could someone on here with a parts book verify I have the correct one? I also need the screw that holds the lever to the switch and the screws that hold the switch in place since all of that was missing.

    I'm away from my books or I'd look it up. You could probably just google the part number and get your answer though. Does the car have cornering lights?

    Seems to be a lot more missing that just the screws, I have a 68 Chrysler column and will get a pic for you tomorrow if you like.

    Looks like the same switch I have in my 68 Newport . Saginaw SM104
    For the lever I decided to replaced the original self tapping screw, which was lost, with a 8-32 x 3/4 SHCS. Run an 8-32 tap to the bottom. It will tighten much better than the original. For the three mounting screws, head out to a parts yard or maybe someone here may have them.

    Thank you very much guys. I have the screws coming from Murray Park. Should have them in a few days, and I do have the correct switch.
