Hey Dan,
Any three speed switch will work. I use Carling 700-BL-XG, they are very close to the originals.

Plus one on Stan's Carling Switch. 

The only real "problem"  is that the spread between the switch positions is greater on the Carling, so the clicks won't quite line up with the speed numerals stamped into the base.

But they work well and the lever even looks similar to original.

Amazing.  I thought this switch was a shoe-in in all forms.  A veteran throws out a knowledge based dog biscuit...  :D
