Man, I better go pull all my old electrical components and put them up for sale. If people really do get $30 for a light switch that you can get for $5 new, I'll take 600% mark up on any electrical parts I have to sell! I bet my PM box fills up tonight!

Lance, your not the first to just "run out" and throw money at parts. Especially given the number of tractors you have! There are a lot of original switches still in use. Where's the fire? Stop over exaggerating.

Jon, nothing wrong with you or your suggestions. However, there are those of us who do appreciate original equipment on our garden tractors. I tend to lean both ways
Yes your right... nothing wrong with keeping it original.... but did ya see the $35 light switch?? looks like it came off a sunken ship.

Ha! I see that. Feel free to fire away at me. I'm not taking the fun from this forum!

I was not trying to go against anyone's good judgment, and suggestions! My interest in having original items can sometimes support other members who feel the same way, at times. Its like those who search for the oil bath air filter for their Original Cub Cadets, or like having a factory correct replacement carb for a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air

If you are looking for a 62801dc switch, take a look at this one from Steiner.
https://www.steinertractor.com/IHS38...F=517B63D8A8F2

Yes it's expensive, but you have to be willing to PAY for reproduction, not generic will fit. Make sure it comes with the knob. Don't trust my research, verify the Cadet and cross-reference part numbers before you order anything.

I'm a big fan of keeping things original. Part of doing that is buying reproduction parts. Some things--especially electrical--don't last forever. I wouldn't want to replace my 50 year old electrical parts on anything with other 50 year old used electrical parts---unless we are talking about something EXTREMELY rare and valuable. Heck, I've had to replace 3 key switches in Cadets in the last 10 years. Unless it is NOS, I wouldn't install a used one if you GAVE it to me.

By the way, when Steiner first came out with those, I ordered one (think it was different for Magneto application) to put on a 47 Farmall M my grandmother bought new.

I think we should have a poll and see how many feel one way or another about it. Just to see how the results come out, not for any kind of argument or whatever. I’m just curious.

I personally like the look of the old switches and the quality of them.

On a side note Jon, I think there’s another Lance out there that will disagree with you

Dont take it too seriously guys, Im not knockin anyone for wanting original BUT... if you have a faulty switch in a 40+ year old tractor you need to get it out of there.... faulty switches CAN and sometimes DO start a fire, a cheap NEW replacement will at least buy you some time to find a GOOD oem switch if thats the route you want to go.... but that $35 rusty switch on ebay is not what I would call a GOOD oem switch, thats just replacing one fire hazard with another.

I sell these tractors so for me.... proper function and safety always comes before originality, if the next guy wants to go oem thats up to him.

Thanks for the link! I didn't know those were available.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
