Ignition switch

Postby Elginred » Thu Mar 18, 2021 10:19 pm

I recently purchased a 1949 Cub which the owner began to convert to a 12 volt system. I'm reverting it back to a 6 volt and a magneto. It now has a double tab ignition switch rather than a single tab switch. Is there a way to make this switch work?

You could connect the magneto lead to one lug and tie the other lug to ground. However, it will work backwards -- what was "off" will now be "on".

Hi,
Below are pics from TM Tractor of the original style magneto ignition switch, if you were wanting the original style.

http://www.tmtractor.com/tm-tractor/gel ... ng_001.htm

The Cub parts manual says the part number is, or was, 54 207 DB
You could do a Google search for that number.

Below is one at Walmart. The pic looks like the original style.

TM Tractor has them also, they are a different style. One is evidently what Case IH sells. :)

The Walmart switch is from All States Ag Parts. You can bypass Walmart and get it directly for the same price. They also have a less expensive option that does not look like an original.
