Ignition switch

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Ignition switch

Postby midmo » Thu Jul 06, 2017 8:24 pm

Working on a early 60s Cushman golf cart.The ignition switch is shot. It has three wires. The cart has a starter generator I guess like the 154. The manual for the 154 I'm having trouble following. Any switch out there than would work? Thanks Ron

Some NAPA and Federated part numbers. All are three position switches for magneto. Terminals marked Bat, Mag, Sol. 7-01901, 7-01903, 7-01848

Following is for a battery powered ignition system. 7-01854, 7-01892. 5 terminal switches.

If you can figure out the wiring, you should be able to come up with a workable switch. You might be able to use one of the 5 terminal switches.

Is it by chance a 2 cycle that you turn the key left for reverse, and right for forward? If so, that is a heavy duty switch with one side coming from battery via a relay operated by the micro switch on the throttle cable, and the other 2 going to 2 different terminals on the starter generator. It applies power to one terminal to crank the engine forward, and to the other terminal to crank engine in reverse. Those old 2 cycles would run either way, though not quite as well in reverse.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

After thought. What is the make and model of the engine? Magneto or battery powered ignition? Been converted from magneto to battery ignition? Make and model of the starter/generator? Have a solenoid? Have a voltage regulator?

The engine, s/g, and wiring was more than likely used in other applications, such as riding lawn mowers.

It's a Briggs and Stratton seven hp. Delco Remy starter-generator. Has a Delco regulator.
