Correct dash switch 48 cub

Postby Qtr Milr » Sun Jul 12, 2020 3:22 pm

Been a while sine I’ve been on. I had a brain fart and sold my 49 several years ago. I couldn’t stand it so I bought a 48 recently. It has seen more that it’s share of bad repairs. What exactly does the correct dash switch look like for a 6volt system with a cutout? I believe I have the incorrect one. It has 4 positions but the body is round. I believe it should have the square version??
Thanks for any help!

You are correct. It should be a square body.

Sorry you can't see it to good in this pick.
Steiner Tractor sells the older 4 position switches. Bought one a few years ago. Good quality and works well.

Here's a wiring diagram supplied to me by Glen.

Good luck.

Thank you for the reply. I’m rewiring the entire system. I’ll get that switch ordered ASAP!!

Hi,
Below are pics from TM Tractor of the 4 position charge rate, and light switch, used on the cutout, or Relay, IH called it, system.

http://www.tmtractor.com/tm-tractor/gel ... ht_001.htm

The round 4 position switch is only for the lights, and won't control the charge rate.
It was used beginning in 1958, at Cub serial number 210001, the Cub parts manual says.

Steiner's part #IHS1636, $69.99 W/O shipping.
If you go to their site and type cub light switch into the search bar you'll find it.

The wiring diagram l posted above is the best one l've seen. Easy to follow.

Good luck.

Thanks again for all the info. I kind of assumed the square one was correct but I wanted to be sure before I ordered it. Some one had required the majority of it at some point. When I bought it it was wired negative ground.

the factory switch had a low/high charge position for the charging system, do you still have a 6 volt system and the generator with a cutout relay?

Yep it still has the 6 volt system with the Cutout Relay. I started digging into wiring right after I got it home. Learned a lot in a hurry, just not enough!!
