Questions: I have a '46 CJ 2A 12 volt with voltmeter, no Ammeter. What connects to the Ignition terminal? Coil? Fuel? Alternator yellow wire? Voltmeter?

The yellow wire on the alternator goes to the ignition switch - to the IGN / as as the coil. Thanks

Questions: I read all the Q & A's and didn't see this question come up. Looking at your photos for this switch, I don't see terminal nuts to tighten the wires onto the terminals. You say this is a complete switch. Does it include the terminal nuts?
Question By: John Millard on Nov 30 2017 12:13 AM
It does come with the terminal nuts. They are in a bag separately but are just not pictured. Thanks

Questions: Can you tell me what is labeled on the back of the switch and I believe ST stands for starter, then the rest would be ING, BAT and ACC, is this correct? BAT is the hot from Battery, ING would be wired to what, and last is ACC and what would that be and is it always HOT when sw is on? When the sw is turned will it start the starter?
Question By: Bob Appleman on Sep 23 2014 12:00 AM
The ign would be off your ignition switch. I believe we do have a schematic for this. Please call us toll free. We can help.

Questions: I have a 48 CJ2A. my ignition switch is built into the coil and the whole thing mounts behind the dash. its 6 volt. do you sell the whole assembly or does it come apart?
Question By: Frank on Jul 27 2014 12:00 AM
Nobody makes that style anymore. You have to mount your coil on the engine now. We sell both the coil and coil mounting bracket too.

Questions: I just purchased a 1953 truck and the key was lost in the estate sale. My ignition switch mounts to a bezel in the dash with a spring and it just presses in and twists into place. I want to keep the original bezel that says starter on it and want to know if this switch will work with this spring or if has to be attached with the retaining nuts provided?

You will need to use this complete replacement in its place.

Questions: What year did they STOP making the floor mounted Starter button? I have a 53 M38A1 with a total ignition switch. Unclear if this is original or some replaced. To that end where do I find that floor mounted push button starter button?
Question By: Jim on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
That is unoriginal for the M38A1. You are probabaly running 12 volt now. It was off and on thru the years depending on the vehicle.

Questions: I need to replace the starter on a 1951 CJ3A. The current started is an orginal with a mechanical start, whic is missing some parts. I am considering the starter number 641157 (12V). In the distription this start switch is suggested. I recentlyt purchased the Jeep. The jeep has an on/off switch. When I need to start the Jeep I put the switch in the on position and have someone push me. Question, with this switch will it replace this on/off or will this switch be in addition to the on/off
Question By: Anonymous on Jul 24 2011 12:00 AM
Yes this is a complete ignition switch. WIth the original starter they used a mechanical linkage start. Our hi-torque starters do away with this.
