It turns out that somebody did not know there is a difference between magneto type ignition switches and points style ignition switches. My GOTO place closed at 3pm, I got there at 3:15pm so no luck on getting the correct switch. The PO had a universal ign switch in his parts box that came with the tractor so 3 wires later and clean and gap the points, I had a running engine. Gotta go for now but there is more to come.

That's great that it is running now. I didn't know the difference between the switches or that my 88 Briggs had a magneto until I fried it!! Oops, so now the engine is out and half apart to get to that stupid magneto. I think I am going to cut the shroud in half so next time I dont half to pull the engine and the front of it but that's another thread. Great success on your WH.

Great job gettin it going!!!! Ign switches are one of the most mis-understood things on GTs. Markings are not universal, some makers put IGN, some putM some others put GND on terminals, that, and lettering is not very good on some of them. In my opinion, you can't beat a cheap digital multimeter, and a little time. A lot of switches anymore are almost universal, just don't use what you don't need. A lot of mags have been fried by putting 12 volts to them. Always check which terminal tests as dead short to the switch body with key off. I fried a big Fairbanks Morse mag one time that it took me 6 months to find. I decided that I would check from then onLOL.

Best regards, George

Go to a Case/IH dealer & ask for one for a 106 through 1250. They are all battery powered coil type switches & most IH dealers keep lots of parts in stock for those old models.

They be comming. William is doing fine but cant bear any weight on the foot. I had to take care of him today and porbably the next 2 days by myself. Hunny bunny is outa sick time at work. Had the follow up DRs appointment today and all is well. We started antibiotics just in case there is some infection. So I have watched my fill of cartoons all day and played board games. He did let me have a nap kinda.
