I'm thinking of replacing the keyswitch on my machine with a toggle and a pushbutton. I need to replace the keyswitch again and can't seem to find something that meets my quality standards. I'm open to sourcing suggestions for a QUALITY keyswitch of course, but in the meantime: I'm going to check my existing switch later today, but thought I'd put this out there. Does the keyswitch 'BREAK' the rectifier (regulator) connection when going to START as in the bottom schematic as opposed to the top?
1995 - early model 73420, 416h, P216 - 900+hrs (New owner - 3rd mow) Tractor just died on me and left me stranded 3 blocks from the house... it just quit exactly like I'd turned the key off. No sputter, no hiccups, no warning lights, just 'off'. Turn the key and there's no power, no lights, no indicators, nothing. My 'thoughts' were ignition switch, blown fuse, safety switch (jumping-starting was futile). When checking fuses, the 25amp fuse came out with a part of the coupling+wire attached... there's more crud, dirt, crap, corrosion than I expected - it's bad! However, I 'think' the fuse 'issue' was a result of me pulling the fuse & not the initial cause of my breakdown. Wish I had taken pics - but the weather/storms came and forced me to out & they are due to return today. So I'm in a bind lol. My 'plans' are to get through this year, then work on this thing extensively with my son this winter... clean, rewire, maintenance the Onan, etc. I plan(ed) to spend some $ but would like to just get what I need to get me going/thru. So far, I'm ecstatic with the tractor. Got my pulley's, belts, fuel cleaned up, oil... new blades & Burtha was knocking it out great until this happened. Engine sings (sung) to me. Think I'm loosing trans/hydro oil but there's no oil loss/burn with the Onan. And Thanks fellas! When I figure this thing out, it'll be because of all the hard work the jockeys have put in with the extensive database of knowledge here on RS! While I was ready to start kicking a horse yesterday, I stepped away, came here (actually verified what I had been 'thinking') and got a game plan. Does anyone know/have a cross-reference part # for Toro ignition switch #116338 (according to the parts manual - that's the one I need). Need a Gates# or something other than a NAPA # - but I'll take what I can get. What are the better/quicker/serviceable ways to get this thing going? I know I'll have to rig up some new fuses for the (2) that are in the fuse block, they're shot. Also, I've researched for 5hrs on here today plus a few hrs last night & see/learned that the 9-pin is a problem area too... There was at least one snipped line behind the dash, but not the hour meter lol...
Hi ya all. Just a quick question. I have just bought a Toro WH 212-5 thats a none runner. Its none runner simply because the key snapped off on the ignition switch. But when i went to pick it up the old owner had very kindly taken out the old switch. My question is i was looking for a "block of wires" that plug onto the back of the switch, however there is not one. There are all seperate wires with spades on them so they could go any order. The old switch has 7 posts. Can someone just post a close up photo of the back of there switch if possible, or a wiring diagram that includes ign swch please. Many thanks Adam
