    What is this?

    What a mess I found under my dash. Probably when the prvious owner installed the crappy after market cassette/radio.

    Anyway, I found this device taped to the lower pertion of the steering column.

    If someone can identify it, I can search the Ford manual and put it back to where it belongs.

    As always, Thanks.

      RE: What is this?

      With that chain attached, my first guess would be a lamp switch. No, seriously, it's driving me nuts because I know I've seen one of those somewhere before. Maybe I'm getting Old-Timers Disease. Are those two black wires going into it?

        It's probably a homemade kill switch.

                Its the chain that held the stopper (rubber plugs also used in a bath tub) that went in the ram air scoops in the hood, to be used when racing various chevy's so that they were not sucked into the intake as we went by them.

                  RE: What is this?

                  Are there any wires connected to it? If so what color are they? I was thinking a switch to turn off the tail/brake lights

                      I won't be able to get to this switch until this weekend.

                      Will let everyone know where the wires go.
