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?

Yes, It has a on position and you can also wire it for a turn start if you desire too. So it will go both ways if you want push start.

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

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?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It does come with the terminal nuts. They are in a bag separately but are just not pictured. Thanks

I want to replace the current floor mount ignition in my cj2a, will this work fine? Also, with this ignition, I am getting the solid state electronic ignition distributor(923068), the 12 volt ignition coil(933160), and the 12 volt voltage regulator(923130). Is this all I need for my 12 volt ignition system? I have a hi torq starter already.

A7225 is the starter switch and this ignition switch is going to work just fine. Your generator would have go to 12 volts. We sell ALT12V if you want too.

Hello .......what chance of a cylinder block remanufacture

Willys Tech:
We are working on a new reproduction cylinder block for 2017. This head is new and ready to ship.

Does this ignition switch have the so called "start feature"? meaning like more modern cars the start all the way right then springs back to run position? I am considering 12v conversion of my jeepster early F-head. thanks Jon.

Willys Tech:
Yes, this has an accessory position and a start position.

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?

Willys Tech:
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.

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?

Willys Tech:
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.

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?

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


Willys Tech:
It should work just fine for you.

is this the complete switch?

Willys Tech:
Yes it is the complete switch.

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

Willys Tech:
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.

Does this switch have 3 positions, OFF-ON-SPRING RETURN ?

Willys Tech:
Yes, that is correct.

I hava a 53 CJ3A. I got it with some missing parts. It doesn't have a starter button on the floor. Will this start the engine without the floor mounted starter button?

Willys Tech:
Yes, you can wire it that way if you dont have a mechanical start.
