Starter Buttons vs Starter Rods

Postby Dave.49.cub » Mon Aug 30, 2004 3:07 pm

Hi all,

I mentioned in an erlier that I had just purchased another Cub. This one's a 1952.

My 1949 is all I'm familiar with, but this 1952 has a starter button that looks like an old foot operated headlight dimmer switch on the bottom of the panel in the center. Top left as the voltage gauge. On the top right is a toggle on/off switch and in the middle is a headlight toggle switch. In the middle left there is a choke cable (like a old lawnmower).

I'm thinking this out to have pull rods for the starter and the choke and a key ignition switch and a litlle pull on switch for the lights.

Anyone familiar with a 1952 F model Cub?

Dave, it sounds like someone has made a few changes in your cub. It should be like your 49. Pull rods for the starter and choke and a push - pull ignition switch and a rotary switch for the lights.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
