I am concerned about the quality of these switches. Some are of poor quality and the button on the top appears "loose" and moves sideways. Is this the best quality or are there better ones on the market? Mine is on a 1947 CJ2A and it got stuck in the on position and will not release.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We have not had any issues with these. Below the cap is a spring, its keeping tension. so the only way it rattles is if the spring was too small. Give us a call if you need to discuss further.

I'm looking for a cable hookup starter pedal for a M38. I have the hole in the floor but it starts with a key. It has been converted to 12v and has the F head engine.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Email and we can try to help. Email us some photos of what all you have there.

Will this work with a 6-volt system, it looks simular to one I need to replace in my Dodge Brothers

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes 6 and 12 volt systems.

Is this a momentary on switch, and 12 Volt?? I'm looking for an alternative to a steering wheel mounted horn button, and I'd like to try a foot switch. This seems a lot sturdier than a golf cart foot switch.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Email some more vehicle information and all what your trying to do and we can help out.

I'm working on a 1953 CJ3B. The starter switch is a floor mount under the body.. This switch looks like the one but it is listed for a CJ3A. Is there another under the body switch for a 3B?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Typically in 1953 you have mechanical linkage. Please email some more starter info and we can help.

I have a cj2a from 47, I'm trying to get it as original as possible, should I put this starter switch or solenoid? Thanks

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This would be what they originally used. A solenoid would no be original.

I purchased a floor mounted starter switch from you for my 1946 CJ2 . The hole in the floorboard is round so the unit can't go in from the top because the protruding base is square, The plunger you activate with your foot is too big to go thru the hole from the bottom. Am I missing something here?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Take a picture of the hole your putting it thru so i can confirm your placement and if body tub is original.

Is it for 24 volt

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, these are for 6 or 12 volt. The 24 volt were on the starter itself. We have them as well.

If this is installed, and it is a key-less start, do you press on the switch again to shut it off? Thanks for help

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It only gives power when pressed down with your foot. Once you release your foot on the button, its off.

Pardon my ignorance here, but can I remove my key ignition altogether and simply use this floor starter instead? (essentially it would be a key-less jeep) 1946 CJ2A, 12 volt Thanks

mike brady:
Still need an ignition switch of some kind
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, people do this all the time.

i have a 57 cj-5 6 volt 134f head. It has a floor starter button (not hooked up) . It has a push button on the dash and i want to switch it to the floor starter button. I cant find any wiring diagrams anywhere Can up advise. Thanks KB

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This floor switch would do the trick. Call us toll free. You can ask for Mike M. You can just wire it directly to this.

Mine is orig 1945 gpw. It has a lever on the starter that moves the small starter gear into position and at the same time actuated the starter. Then when it's started it springs back. Question is will this switch when pressed kick that gear into place? And then get out of the way when it's started?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
That would be a starter out of a CJ-3A or a CJ-3B not a Willys MB. The CJ-3A or CJ-3B used mechanical linkage originally. This is for a cable hook up.

Will it work with a 1942 GPW which has been converted to a 12 volt system?

Willys Tech:
Yes, this works on either 6 or 12 volt.

I have a CJ2 been converted to 12 Volt negative ground. Is the starter switch positive or negative ground? Or does it make a difference? Thank you.

Willys Tech:
The starter switch doesn't really have anything to do with + or - ground.

Does the floor mounted starter switch go under one of the pedels and also i have a generator on my jeep does that mean that it is a 6 volt motor

Willys Tech:
It goes to the right of the accelerator pedal. You will have holes in your floor board to mount it.

I have an early CJ3A. Original floor starter in not operable and looks like a large button at the top left of the transmission cover plate. A previous owner seems to have fabricated a lever action floor starter mechanism as a substitute. Will this switch also work with the CJ3A? Is there a separate electrical harness part to connect to the starter too?

Willys Tech:
They originally used a lever on the starter motor for a mechanical start so this item really wont work. Sounds like they may have tried to do some repair. We can get all that good used.
