What are the terminal markings on the switch?
Do you know for certain that your switch is bad? .........Have you checked for proper continuity in all key positions?

I heard of the switches being faulty at times and frying the ignition unit. I had that happen on my 1256. I added a toggle switch soon after.
I do have a diagram of the toggle switch configuration.
Just a suggestion from my own experience I had.
"Originally the ignition system turned the engine on and off
using the same key switch used to start the tractor. As the
key switch aged, it often became faulty in that it would send
a 12V pulse to the module, which would ultimately destroy it.
To avoid buying another replacement module, it is highly
recommended that a separate switch be employed.
Reference the wiring diagram below, and you will notice
that the new switch should be connected between the
white lead of the stator or yellow lead of the module and
any convenient ground.
If the white/yellow lead is brought to ground, the engine will
die. If the white/yellow connection is open, the engine will
be allowed to run. Installing a separate switch in this
fashion will ensure that the module will not be subjected to
stray voltage from the battery". Quoted from SamsBolens
