B-10 Ignition switch

Recommended Posts

CHolmes
I am rewiring a B-10 that has a switch and starter button. The w diagram looks as if the switch is wired between the starter button and the S/G. This seems to be a bit of a challenge considering the wires are quite large from the starter button. Could the switch be wired between the mag wire? Meaning when the switch is off the mag to points lead is open? Anyone have a better idea?

The only thing the switch does is ground the mag. If original, I beleive, it has one terminal and that goes the the lead to the points, If it has two terminals the other one goes to ground.

actually when the switch is off it's closed to ground.. After rereading your post I realized you said "between the mag wire". The answer would be no. It is tied into the wire but not between. The rest of my reply stands.

OK that does make sense. Like I said the diagram looks like it (switch) cuts power to S/G from the start button. If I go to the Magneto and to ground that would be easier. I guess that would mean the tractor should still roll over but not start even with the key in the off position.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
