[DML] New starter switch

I recently purchased, and installed, a new starter switch. Last weekend I drove to the Red Rock Casino for lunch. When leaving the key ceased functioning. Fortunately the switch was in the on position and I was able to get home. The only way to stop the engine was to let the clutch out in gear with the brake on. I then disconnected the battery. Monday I removed the housing and the switch fell out. The little screw was still in place. It seems that the new switch is not as deep as the original and when the little screw is put in it doesn't go into anything. Would have been nice if the sellers had done a little measuring before putting it on the market. I posted a picture of the necessary repair (see link below). You will need to buy a #2/56 tap and drill set, found at a local hobby store that specializes in RC. Be very careful when doing this as the tap and drill are very small and would be quite easy to break. Now the switch can't just fall out
