8n ignition switch

Tom Carter Had to replace the ignition switch on my 8n (12-volt). Do not think it is the correct switch! When you start the tractor - no problem. When you let go of the key the engine begins running rough. If turn the to right and hold it the engine runs great. Let go of the key and back to rough. What is the correct switch?
Larry You need to make sure it is an on/off ignition switch only and not one like a car with the start mode on it. From what you explained it sounds like that is the kind you put on. Mine went bad on my 8N and I put a simple on/off toggle switch with a light on it in. Works great and I never leave the igition on now.
Jim Loveridge Even if it is a switch to activate a starter it should still work if you have it wired correctly.
Bob G Is it wired to engage starter with the key switch? it may have a resister in the run side side of it cuting the voltage to the points
THUNMB SWITCH ON TRANS SHOULD BE USED TO CRANKS THE ENGINE. That way the saftey lockout works. You need the correct switch. just8ns will have them.

Jim Loveridge Your local auto parts store should have one too.
