How to find correct headight switch

Hi,

Changing my headlight switch for 84 cj. My old one has threads all the way to base where it connects to the dash and is used by a nut to keep it attached to the dash. All new replacements have threads only at the top of the brass but are clean for about 1 inch after. Not sure what I am missing since I do not see how the new one will attach to my dash using that nut?

Thanks again


Jeeps and motorcycles..is there anything else?

what is your problem? is the hole in your dash larger than the threaded end on the new switch?

Does it look like this?


This is what it should look like.

as ECJ-7 says that if the hole is to big then it will slip through the hole in the dash You might be able to put a thin washer behind it to hold it in the right position.
