He advised against using a 235 degree F switch because he believes it could allow parts in the transmission to be compromised before the warning light came on. He says, depending on the load such as pulling skiers, my in-line Velvet Drive should normally run about 150-175 degrees F. Therefore, he didnít think using a 190 switch (just 5 degrees below 195), such as the $60-$80 Alto, would be a problem.

He only had the genuine Velvet Drive 195 degree F switch at around $150. He said a switch for a Hurth could work if it had the right temperature trip point and dimensions.

Iím going to look into the one mikeg205 found for $22 for a Hurth transmission, but the Bakes parts guy is out of the office today.
Sounds like you got good info from this guy.
