Sears/Steyr 3-Speed Hubs

I am working on a Steyr 3-speed that was made for Sears in the 1960's. I think that the rear hub is OK, but I may need to replace the trigger shifter. Does anyone know if a Sturmey Archer trigger will work? I think that Steyr may have licensed the hub from SA back in the day.

Yes.
(BTW: The hub may be Styria.)

What is your trigger marked? I have had two Sears with the Austrian made 3 speed, and they both had SA shifters.

Yes. Sure looks like Sturmey Archer innards.

Yes, a SA 3-speed trigger shifter will work just fine with your Sears hub. I have used them in the past with no problems whatsoever.
