The original Delco Remy paddle switches were used on many GM applications from the late 30's to the mid 50's.
They work quite well on the original 6 volt systems but,not so well on systems that have been converted to 12 volts.
There are still alot of good used & NOS ones out there.

light inside the knob that got dimmer - which makes sense as voltage dropped

I didn't intend to spark a new new debate over paddle vs resistor switches. My switch gets warm, but not hot. The motor is a single speed, so I think it is either on or off. I appreciate everybodys input here.

I don't profess to be an expert but I believe all motors are single speed, it's the switching that determines the speed by how much current is sent to the motor. If I'm wrong someone will point it out I'm sure. grin

yes - switching/how many resistors/total resistance are in the circuit
