Works great

I use this pressure switch on all the brake systems I run, along with the adapter T. I like it better than struggling with a mechanical switch located under the dash on the pedal. I've used them on motorcycles and cars and have only had one fail (as I speak on my 49 Ford). But it's easy to replace.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Buy this switch

After a total new brake system rebuild on my 46 Ford coupe, the one thing leaking was the old stock Ford brake switch (I used silicon brake fluid). The Speedway switch solved it. I learned the hard way to get the harness with it. You won't find it any place else or at least I couldn't.
Pros:
  • best available
Cons:
  • no con

Can this switch be threaded into one of the extra ports on a combination valve?

Answers

This switch has 1/8" NPT and if your combination valve uses that thread type it can be threaded into it. Typically a combination valve will have inverted flare threaded connections. If yours has 3/8"-24 IFF then adapter part number 9103185 will allow you to adapt this switch to your valve.

I intend to put this switch into the 9/16-18 iff port on the pass side of my master cyl with adapter 910-3184 . The driver side of the master cyl will have 910-31351 . Do you have any concern about an install like this ? Please advise .

That will work great as long as your master cylinder has an outlet on the other side for your brake line to connect to.

12 V switched power will be connected to the red wire and the white wire will connect to the brake lights.
