Starter switch

Tue Sep 24, 2013 7:05 pm

Messicks shows two different starter switches, one with a case-ih number and another after market switch. The case -ih is about twice the cost. Are they the same and is one better than the other. Bought one from TM about a year ago. the insulting material has deteriorated to the point it does not insulate and shorts out.

Sounds like reason enough, to go with the CaseIH one!

Hi there ole friend, how you been :?: Hope all has been well.

Messicks is priced with a premium and the original switch is NLA. The aftermarket switch is the same switch available on :eBay: - Farmall John Deere Oliver Moline Allis Chalmers Switch Starter Button 593292c1. At US $9.99, seems a fair price. I would probably get 2 .. make it worth the shipping.

I have an aftermarket switch on one starter .. seems ok for what it is. Not much different than the one on Ellie except for the copper lug. The aftermarket switch appears to use a brass ?? lug :?:

If the switch is okay and just the insulators are bad you can make new ones by cutting them out of heavy plastic like an antifreeze jug or a Clorox bottle. It has worked for me.
