I replaced my headlight switch and it does the same thing. Hope we hear a
answer.

Ray, seems like you have done most of what anyone would recommend. Are you
sure the springloaded pin that holds the shaft in place is extending full out
after the shaft is sent home? Is this a 2 parts of the same switch or
mismatched? Good luck, Nick

have you been using the same knob and shaft for the different switches you
have tried? Maybe the shaft itself is worn out. My old headlight switch shaft
looks like it is worn down a little when I compare it to a new one, but it
hasn't got to the point where it is popping out of the switch.

I purchased a new switch and shaft from Early Ford. If you don't get the
shaft in such that the spring loaded pin is all the way out the shaft comes
out. Once I get it in correctly it stays. Shaft was actually in a Dennis
Carpenter package, switch has a ford logo on it..

Hi Ken.
I just took a look at the pictures of your truck.
Good job. It looks great, and your build time was relatively short as
well. I might as well be the first to say that I was disappointed to see
that "foreign car" motor in there though.

Anyway, nice work.
