When I converted my 53 Years ago I used the original Switch. You will need to disconnect the Wire to Resistor for Dash Lights and run direct 12 Volts from a Terminal on Switch.The dimmer will no longer work but U will have bright Dash Lights. Otherwise use One from a 12 Volt Car like 1956.

My 54 has the original switch.  I always keep the dash light bright so not sure the dimmer even works.  In addition, I put LED's in for all the dash bulbs.
