Here is the parts book illustration. You can see it on a bike in Dr. Pepper's posting in this topic. The mounting plate is just a piece of sheetmetal.

These switches are a little hard to find. They often got broken/lost. The same switch and knob are used on Sportster XLCH in the early 1960s, so the Sportster guys tent to snarf them when they come up on eBay.

I have a 63 scat, the switch is located on the left side
on the upper triple tree. There is two threaded holes
between the left fork and the head tube of the frame. My
switch has long been in pieces but that is where it was
when I got the bike in the early 70s

I recently purchased a 1963 Harley Pacer and have started
the task of identifying the missing parts. I am using an
original 1963 Harley Parts catalog listing the Scat-
Pacer-Super 10-Model 165 and Hummer.
For the most part I have been able to sort out the proper
parts required along with their correct part numbers and
their location. However, I am left scratching my head as
to the location of the headlight switch as I have yet to
find a picture showing it.
Any help is appreciated.
