Switches

Any help on ID of these switches is appreciated.
Some are obvious, others not so much.
They will be for sale.

I'll give it a shot knowing the more knowledgeable will correct me:
1. Accessory plug for a trouble light, etc. that goes into...
2. Accessory socket (not installed on C models)
3. Cigarette lighter with bullet connection. Wrong knob.
4 & 5. Push pull switches usually used for early wipers but could also be used for electric fuel pump primers and Carrera fuel pumps?
6. Looks like a broken hand throttle switch,
7. Looks like an old car alarm switch.
8.Reverse light switch.
9. Either a headlight or wiper switch.
10. Cigarette lighter?
11, 12 & 16. Later ignition switches.
13.Either a headlight or wiper switch.
14 & 15. Early ignition switches.

I suspect 7 and 15 are US auto parts store switches.

Are numbers 4 & 5 pull for on or push for on?

Push for on would be Carrera coil switches, pull for on would be A wiper etc.

Hi Bill
They are pull on, so wiper switches.
