stock dash switch for accusump control

Do any know if there is a stock dash switch type (986 style) that would have suitable characteristics (poles/throws) for accucump control? This would be to control the solenoid valve by hand.

It would nice to have one that has an indicator lamp incorporated and perhaps wire it to light when the accusump fires.....or just an on indicator light

I am determined to use a stock switch for my accusump to operate exactly the way you are stating, will keep you posted as to how I do it.

Nice....I like manual control and indication as well.

Apparently the canton solenoid valves are of a slow fill type; the accumulator gets filled quite slowly. I am not quite sure why this is or what benefit this could have

For this reason I am considering the manual handle. I was thinking of mounting it to the "storage rack" above the drivers knees so that it is within reach for actuation while at high rpm
