So I have been getting nervous about all my IH tractors and garden tractors having regular keys. So today I did an inventory of keys and this is what I found. The CC 102 uses an indak that will not release itself from the ignition switch, so it is safe lol. The CC 109 parts tractor has no key in the ignition, but the CC 108 key fits and operates the ignition on the 109, score but not surprised. It was when I went over to the Farmall 140 which has just an On/Off key switch and read the numbers on the key in its ignition and the one from the CC 108 I found... They are keyed the same!! Who would have thunk that. So I ask this question, are all IH tractors keyed alike, or is this just a coincidence?

Well I know my International cub tractor uses the same key as my Originals , 100 , 122 , 123 etc .   In fact all the early IH

Cub Cadets used the same cut key ...

So you suspect the indak switch on my CC 102 is wrong?

Well, sounds like I will need to get that 109 parts switch installed some day (after I have a key made for it).

There are pros and cons to having common keys.
I also worry some at shows, but not to much if there is some kind of security or camping membership.

In the 60's and 70's that key was used in pretty much all the tractors IH built.  We had a 656 that had that key, our 766 uses that key, so on and so on.  It was WIDELY used to say the least.  One thing to watch it the actual keyed end of the key.  I have IH keys in 4 different styles of handle ends all with the same switch end.
