Headlight Knob Removal

Postby PCPACrewCab » Mon Apr 23, 2018 6:04 pm

Hi everyone, new to the site but I have a quick question. Working on tearing the interior out of my new crew project and ran into a little headache. Does anyone have any tricks on removing the headlight knob? I know it sounds crazy haha. Not sure if someone glued it on or what?

There is a release button on the switch body. Pull switch to the on position press and hold the release button and the knob and shaft pull out together.

Thank you OrthmannJ! My truck is a 1974 f250 short bed
4x4
4 Speed
I actually purchased two of these trucks, one is a 4x4 and the other is 2x4. The 2x4 is a roller and the 4x4 is complete. They are both pretty rough but I couldnt pass them up. I have been looking for one of these for a long time and I have only seen a few of them. I have seen two of them that were owned by brothers and one at the Carlisle Truck Nationals. I am going to do a frame up restoration on the 4x4 and use the 2x4 for parts.

Sounds like a good plan.
You should start a build thread in the project section.
