Does anyone know of a NAPA/Tractor Supply or other battery ignition switch that will fit the cub dash? The only one that I know of that they sell has a 7/16" shaft on it. Too small for the hole. I'd buy a new OEM one but they sell for quite alot of $$. Suggestions?
Try Jaimie and John at JP Tractor Salvage, Tom and Lynn at TM Tractor Parts or David and Alton as Chown Tractor Parts.
You may find a used one the better buy. I really like the keyed ignition on both my 47 and 48 Cub. Jethro just had a household spst light switch for an ignition switch.
My 48 has a push pull switch intended for fog lights. I used a washer to cover the larger hole.

John, I'll probably do the same with the washer and maybe make some kind of plastic sleeve so the shaft doesn't shift around. Rudi, I have the original magneto ignition switch (don't know whether it works though) so when I change my electrical back to original, I'll probably pop that in. I'll try the salvage places though just the same.
Will this work??? It requires a 1" hole.

Looks like it would work although would have to take pic to shop to make sure.
Did a little looking on that site and found this page which might be a better choice. Jim should know on that one.
One of the three of the parts places should have a used one. I know that Chown's does as I was looking at it. Probably has a bunch more tucked away in a box or two. I am going out to see Alton and David on Friday and could check as well. Send Dave an email. John or Tom probably has them as well.
I have a switch that fits as well but it is not original. Let me know if you want it. I haven't got a clue what it is worth. Suggest something. Send me a PM or an email.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the links.
I called JP Salvage. They have original OEM battery ignition switches, used for $25.00 brand new $50. Seems a little steep which is why I started this thread. Keyed ignition is certainly nice however. Some thinking to do for me...
Thanks for the suggestion on purchasing a switch from you, Rudi. I have this one from NAPA at the moment. Should do the job for now however, I'd eventually like to re-wire all to original specs. Perhaps over the winter.
Again, thanks to all. You've been a great help.
