I have a 1977 Ford LGT 145, it was the first thing I ever drove and my grandfather left it to me when he passed for when I bought my first house. I have cut the lawn about 6 times in a month lol. But I recently found my tractor would not start after some diagnostics I have found a loose/broken connection on the back of my ignition switch. I have repaired it to work but I would like to replace it but I am having a hard time finding parts. If anyone can direct me to someone or somewhere I could get this part I would be very thankful! Thanks for reading and again sorry if this is in the wrong spot.

Check with the site sponsers--I've heard good thing about them and their prices and service are hard to beat.

Welcome to GTTalk. There are lots of ford owners here to help out on this. Most of those ignition switches are still available and not expensive. It's just a matter of getting the correct one for your tractor. I'll second a look at our site sponsors. One of them may be able to get you the part you need.

Welcome to the forum! Here the wiring diagram for the markings on the switch. They are fairly common to find!

Battery ingition vs. magnito ignition.
