You have asked a very broad question, if you narrow it down perhaps someone could answer your question.

NAPA is usually fairly priced with quality products.

Go to an auto recycling yard, and get what you need.

electrical

Yea, I've been doing a lot of Napa, lately, but a headlight/turn signal/multi-switch is $360 for the good one. I really prefer to buy quality, but that seems high. However, there are so many brands I never heard of, right now, I feel they must be cheap Chinese products, yet I want a reasonaable price. Yea, I know. Wish in one hand.

Yes. It's winter here in MN. Didn't feel like hunting one down in a snowbank.

$80.00, hunt in a snow bank, not so much. For $360.00, I could put on some warm clothes.

I don't much believe in used electrical parts.

I can understand the concern about used electrical parts. However, when I have to make a choice between some used OEM item, vs. something made in China, I will go with the used OEM item.
Electrical parts tend to fail at two times in their life span. When they are new, and when they are very old.
