    I need a set of door jam switch's for my 1972 Duster, the one's I've ordered from year one are to small for the opening all ready made in the door, once I find the right ones I will sell the other here.
    The part number for the wrong size one's are NG1031 ( Says 3/8" Size ) but I need a bigger size. Not sure what to order, I've even seen some that have two spades for wires but I think I only need the ones for one wire.

    Please help...

      I'm dealing with the same issue myself on a '73 Duster. I ordered one through autozone and it's too small to fit the existing hole. I took it back to the store and they looked it up to confirm it was the correct part listed.

      Looking at how the switch works, I might just try cleaning corrosion off the contacts of the existing one.

          Ran across the same thing a few years ago, where they were all too small.
          I finally just gave up and got some spacer sleeves (like a threaded insert) from Ace Hardware, since all that is required is that the switches ground to the body.
          Been fine for years now (and why wouldn't they be?)

            No pictures, but they were a threaded sleeve I found in the boxes on the wall with all the hardware, nuts and bolts.
            They look kinda like these and are called threaded inserts.
