Hello everyon I am a new member I recently bought a 184 lo boy . I rent a 7 acre farmhouse with lots of grass to cut. My landlord has a deutz Allis 6265 and a John Deere F985. They suffer from massive neglect and abuse. What a shame. The 6265 is a mess the jd is broke after every use. So I had enough investing in someone else's junk. My 184 is awesome, naturally it needs a few things. Mostly cosmetic, and a pto switch. It is frozen. But this tracker is amazing. I am 61 and love old AMERICAN BUILT Machinery thanks for letting me in the forum!!!

Welcome to the group, Joe! FYI, the PTO switch on the 184 is the same as used on quite a few other brands and models. That should make it easier to find one.

Some people have been successful freeing up these switches with a very light oil (like sewing machine or 3 in 1 oil)

The pto switch needs to be pulled up slightly before you can flip it on. Not sure if you know that.

The IH number is 107372c1. Hamiltonbobs should have it. You can use google or look it up in the Stens catalog (stens.com) to get a whole bunch of equivalent part numbers.

Thanks, Jim! I usually deal with Bob, but $42 for the switch seemed excessive.

Buy some electrical contact cleaner from the hardware store and spray inside and then work the switch. I haven't tried on my switch, but if you are careful most switches can be opened up and you can clean the contacts - pencil erasers would great, or some very fine emery cloth. Just make sure the springs don't fly out! Also, make sure the the spade lugs that the wire harness connects to is good and clean.
