Yes, I'm quite familiar with them. Sick of them actually. Throughout the season back home (May 15-July 15) I can get them for nothing. I might have one feed of lobster a year though, if that.

IGNITION SWITCH PROBLEM

Ignition switch in the only position the key can be removed....

2012-10-08 08.25.43.jpg

Should the key have been in the shot above I would have been able to turn the key counter clockwise to "OFF" and then continue counter clockwise one more position beyond "OFF". From far left the key has three preset stops and then it turns clockwise one more time to "START" and then once the key is released it centers itself back on "IGN". The light worked in the OFF and IGN positions but not in the first or LIGHTS positions.

Three pics of the wiring set up....

Bottom shot of the ignition switch....

2012-12-03 20.43.52.jpg

So, here are my questions:

1) At what position should the key be able to pull out?

2) What does "ACC" mean on the bottom of the ignition switch?

3) What is the slot and hole for at the "top" of the ignition switch (see last pic above)?

4) Is this the correct decal?

5) Why won't my key pull out when in the "left of OFF" or OFF positions?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I'm not CASE expert but based on my experience the key should come out with the key in the "off" position. Key in the "IGN" position should run the engine without lights off, key in the "Lights" position should run the engine and turn the lights on. Acc = accessory on which in this case should be the lights on.

I forgot to ask... so the key comes out when in the "lights" position right? so will it actually shift backward to the "off" position?

Yes and Yes. The key turns counter clockwise two "clicks" beyond the "lights" position. The first click put the key straight up and down and the second click backwards is one past the off position. If I rotate the ignition switch so the key is straight up to off when in the furthes left position then the key comes out when it's pointing to the IGN position. Thus may not be the original switch...who knows!

Not an original key switch. 100% sure. The one in my pics is orignal. I'd be buying a Case replacement switch if it were me. Rather than deal with that.

A lot of aftermarket switches are ACC-OFF-ACC/IGN-START or something similar.

Well it was a productive day........

Got the Speaker 777s hooked up and running. I was able to reinstall the ignition switch so that the key pulls out in the "OFF" position. It'll get me through the Winter at least. Light come on when she running and off when the key is "OFF" so I'm happy.

AND.....my airplane (Cessna) wing flap motor came in the mail today:

2012-12-05 18.47.36.jpg

So now for the fun part.....MOUNTING it on the snowcaster. I have a few ideas of my own but I'm hoping to get a few other ideas before I set to work.

How would you mount and connect this motor to the chute if it were your project? Thanks.

What kind of RPM will that motor produce? Are you able to adapt it directly to the "corkscrew" peice that turns the chute or do you need to reduce the RPM's first.

Not sure. I need to figure some of that out quickly. I have been toying with three main ideas: direct connect to the shaft, belt or chain drive between motor and shaft or some sort of belt directly from the motor to the chute itself. I'll run some "tests" and post my finds later.

Based on my crude tests this evening I believe I will need to reduce the RPMs before connecting it to the shaft of the corkscrew; whether that is electronically or by way of using gears and chain/belts. I've done some searing online regarding the use of resistors or pulse width modulation (PWM). I have a few emails out to determine the exact RPMs of the motor and will post once I know. Thanks.
