  • Ignition Switch
  • I tried Dennis Carpenter and Just8Ns but neither has this rare tractor ignition switch. Home Depot maybe? Good to 120VAC.

  • I just noticed what appears to be a splint taped onto the steering wheel, maybe even 2 of them. I never knew they would heal!

  • I have several of those that I have salvaged over the years. I would be happy to send you one or two. Do you want the nice brown bake-a-lite color?

  • Re: Ignition Switch
  • Just noticed the AMMETER is showing a charge but oil gauge not registering....hhhhmmmm is it running or not? It's an 8N but the hood isn't attached to the dash panel. Don't remember where I found this and thought I'd seen it all. What's next, a 240VAC EI conversion???

  • Re: Ignition Switch
  • Tim , itís Andy in NY , those are pictures of my 8n with the light switch , since replaced with the quality ( not Cheena ) , switch from Just8Ns , the ammeter looks like itís charging , but a closer look will see that the needle is laying in the bottom of the gauge , that is a paint drip from brush paint job , haha . Thanks alway enjoy the banter with fellow N owners :) just a note of course the tractors not running the switch is in the off position

  • Re: Ignition Switch
  • I installed a NOS Ford key switch on my 600.

    The switch is so unreliable, that wall switch looks tempting !!

  • Re: Ignition Switch
  • Where did you get it? I've had the Dennis Carpenter OEM-style 8N-3679-C Ignition Switch, with cloth covered wiring, NOT vinyl since I rebuilt my 8N in 2003 and have had NO problems. Same switch used from 48 (8N)thru 64.

  • Re: Ignition Switch
  • The bad switch was NOS in Ford packaging with vinyl covered wires.

    The ignition cuts out sometimes while running because the switch loses continuity.

    A "key-on" warning light shows the problem.

    It takes several swipes of the contacts to get continuity before starting.

    I haven't used the tractor enough since refurbishing for it to be a priority, but switch replacement is definitely needed.

  • Be sure you ship USPS Priority Mail! I had two packages ordered and shipped on DEC 8 and 9th and just arrived on Friday! One I had filed a grievance with one and they replied after two days as "Issue Resolved" !!!
