Has anyone had any luck finding a replacement PTO switch for the Massey MF1655 tractors? Went to start mine up last night to move it and it is acting up again. I am pretty sure it is in the switch itself. I haven't hooked a meter up and troubleshooted anything yet. Originally it started acting up and toggling the switch on and off a couple times would let it start again.

 

It has progressively gotten worse where sometimes I would have to jiggle the plugs on the back of the switch and wiggle wires and it would start again. Sometimes it goes for days and weeks with no issue. I could just put a regular switch in there and bypass the safety but i would rather not.

Jacks Small Engine says they have it HERE, but it's over $57 plus shipping!  If it were me, I'd very carefully take the switch apart.  Usually they just need a good cleaning to get them working great again.  If the springs behind the contacts are bad, I just replace from one of those spring assortment kits from Harbor freight.

You would think I would know better but sometimes when you have a bunch of stuff to do and you are in a hurry stuff slips by. I need to pull the plugs on my current switch and check to make sure it has the same prongs. Something tells me it may be different. I noticed too it is more of an aftermarket switch and doesn't have the pull to flip on it.

The odd thing is I put the MF part number in ebay & got nothing.  Usually a seller will put the OE part number in the ad even if it's an aftermarket part.

There's a lot of guys not posting a part number.  Most customers don't know a part number, or even how to find the parts books for something as unusual as a Massey. 

 

I did an experiment on eBay where I listed the same carburetor under the OEM part number and then under the engine application.  It was a very popular carburetor for a Kohler, and at the time there was only one or two other sellers.  And I had the best price.  :smilewink:

 

I had two available on each listing.  The listing with the engine application sold out (both carburetors) that week.  I left the other one up under the OEM number, and one sold about a month later.

That's why I like hanging and helping out here at GTT. You're so darn eloquent. I woulda just said 'I should pull my head out of my ass' but you really spiff things up.

I recently saw another brand that used the same type of switch for their PTO, dang it all if I can't remember though.

I found a used one from a tractor a guy parted, hope it works.  The PO had bypass the original one on my 1855 so I fear it is bad.
