    This is what the 77/78 switch (you are looking for) looks like 77-78 wiper switch.jpg

    I would like to bench test my switch. Is there an easy way?

    Yes, you can bench test it with a multimeter set to ohms. You need the schematic to verify what each wire does as a guide.

    I bet a truck/van switch would work if you metal epoxied the tabs to the NOS switch. If the old one doesnt work cant hurt to try...I have a van one if you cant source a Camaro one-its 1977 only for the trucks but the wiring colors are the same-connector is different but you can change the leads around. Just a thought.
