On Saturday night I was having a few whilst lost in tractor thoughts and realised that I am a bit confused (doesn't take a lot) about the ignition switches that should be connected to three of my tractors. Also what options I have for replacing two of them.
My 1962 RAM has a good switch and the parts list show it as a 1713255, which I believe is the switch used for most magneto tractors including 600-1000. A previous owner has replaced the switch on my 1961 RAM with some oddball item and I don't have the key. The switch on my 1964 EK7 has been replaced with something even more strange.
When I looked up the parts lists for the 61 RAM and 64 EK7 I was expecting them to both quote 1713255 as the switch, but they don't. Apparently, for the RAM I need 1712905 and 1715471 for the EK7. As both the originals are missing I haven't got a clue what they should be.
Does anyone know what the differences in the switches are? Will any magneto switch work for both tractors and what recommendations do people have?
