This Ranco switch actually uses an inner and outerknob, and combines the 
functions of 2 switches into one switch .I have the knobs and faceplate if 
anyone needs them.  I have the rare parts catalogue supplement #605775,  for 
US 2000 and 2000TC, that includes the AC system, which lists   this switch 
559226, called switch, thermoststic control. It fits a 69 2000TC, not a 
3500S.It also fits series II XKE and Jaguar 420. The 67 420 Jag system was 
made in England by Delenair, same as the 69 Rover 2ooo system. I do not know 
who made the XKE system; probably Delenair.I sold a Ranco switch to an XKE 
owner, but it had one bad speed, same as his. I had to exchange it with the 
one from my 69 2000TC, so am missing one.. Does anyone know if this Ranco 
switch is still made? I would buy this one if the buyer in Canada has a 
3500S; and cannot use it. It is a different switch. JamesDean, Ft.
