I'm rewiring my Case 224 that I'm rebuilding and I got all new electrical components so I don't have any issues in the future (I got an original equipment Case/Ingersoll ignition switch).  I'm building a brand new wiring harness and I was wondering if anyone knows what wire goes where on the ignition switch.  This is for a 1976 Case with a Kohler with the starter/generator unit and points ignition.

 

Here's a picture of the switch.  If anyone could help me, I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks in advance!

Is the a starter/generator engine or does it have a starter and stator? I looked in the Operators manual and the wiring diagram there shows what looks like a 5 prong switch with the starter/stator. But the parts manual shows a 4 prong with starter/generator.

I would say you missed that 2 wires go to one post. It is a 4 post ignition switch.

Look closely at the switch blades. Each is labelled with a letter. Follow the wiring diagram and use a continuity tester to check everything before you connect the battery. I am going to have to rewire one of my Case 220s soon. Good Luck, Rick
