Does anyone know where to get a backup light switch for a 79 4x4?

Or is there a newer one that will work by changing connectors?

Good question , how much different would they be in the 80’s or even 90’s ? 
 

I may actually have that in new old stock but to dig it out would be a chore. 
 

And I should have one on a tranny. I have at least a couple of the single range on demand from 75-79 and gen one Brat. 
I should be back at storage this weekend. If you can’t find one let me know.

From online pics ea82 looks like it should work, I had one from a 99 ej25 it threaded in and sealed, but doesn’t work. Looks like the plunger is too short. Might just order ea82 version and give it a try.

So I can 100% confirm, ea82 reverse light switch works with ea71 transmission (just change connectors). Which I assume means it will work for ea81 as well. EJ will fit but not work. 
hope that helps someone.
