I don't know the part number, but every early 80's Ford and probably earlier up thru the mid 90's used the same switch. Every parts store on the planet has them in stock. I don't think they were ever redesigned.

This switch is supposed have wider spacing between the contacts to prevent flash over and used in recall replacement(the only one I'd consider for my vehicles)... Pt # is printed on switch...

What happens is with wear the spaces between the contacts fills grease and metallic particles, eventually resistance between contacts is low enough current is drawn resulting in unattended fires...

AFAIK being it was a fire issue, the recall is still in effect... I suppose those expire at some point but no idea when...

My curiosity got me... Note sentence as end of first page, basically says recall never expires...

Generally, any Ford dealer should be able to check if the recall was done using your VIN.
