HELP!! Lift switch AC716 - 7016 need part #

Recommended Posts

My lift switch is shot, completely stopped working. This wouldn't normally be a problem except that I've got 8" of snow and 150' of driveway. As luck would have it I got about 15' plowed before the switch quit working (internal disfunction). The dealer can't find a part number so he can't even check to see if it's in stock. The lift kit came off a AC310 and the switch has 6 spade conectors on it. Any help would be would be great.

I went out and got a marine grade switch. You need a double pole, double throw,(DPDT) momentary contact switch rated for 15 or preferably 20 amps. I have a stock switch from another electric lift kit, but that won't do you any good for this snow storm.

The electric lift is nice, but they seem to quit when you need them most. Here's a modification I made to my tractor. I did it for a dual lift, but it also works as a backup for the electric lift.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
