Ignition Switch - Battery ignition

Postby ScottyG » Tue Jul 20, 2004 7:00 pm

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?

Thanks. :lol:

Scotty:

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.

Thanks guys.

Will this work??? It requires a 1" hole.

TBar:

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.

Scotty:

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.
