Broadmoor ignition switch

Recommended Posts


I have one switch with no key, and another with a key but the male connector has snapped off. I tried soldering a tab on without success. Is there a way to split them open and move the good internals over to the good externals? Thanx, Dave

I don’t know of any easy way to change the “guts” between the two key switches. You may be able to drill a pilot hole at the broken tab and use a sheet metal through a new connector tab.  The sheet metal screw should make electrical contact with the broken tab. 

Or unless you’re concerned with someone starting the tractor when you don’t want them to, I’d install a simple toggle switch so that when “on”, it would ground the mag.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
