Tamiya eco battery Switch for very old ESC (Clod Buster) ?????

Recommended Posts

I need a simple on/off switch for the my LED light kit in clod buster chassis.

So I see the battery (eco) terminator switch. The holes measure 46mm distance.

Where I can get a simple switch in this size? I don't know the industrial standard....

Standard Tamiya switch size? I asked the same question before and was told it is JST switch.

I mean number 11 in picture above!

This is the eco switch, holes distance is 46mm.

I do NOT mean on/off switch!

I found this: Tamiya 75015

Is this right switch?

That only has an overall length of 22.2mm (mounting holes 20mm apart) your mounting holes alone is 46mm apart. This is less than half the size of what you will need based on your measurement. 

Based on the picture, I am guessing it is some kind of DPDT switch, and based on your measurement I will look at those meant for mains 120v/240v type.

Possibly this? The power/eco switch changes the motors from series to parallel wiring.

But any switch with the right hole dimensions should work since you just need a simple on/off function for the LEDs. It's just a matter of finding one.
