Questions: 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?
Question By: Willoiam Johnson on Mar 17 2021 4:16 PM
Typically in 1953 you have mechanical linkage. Please email email@example.com some more starter info and we can help.

Questions: 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
Question By: Emilio on Sep 3 2020 1:36 PM
This would be what they originally used. A solenoid would no be original.

Questions: 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?
Question By: Dennis Butterfield on Apr 4 2019 1:35 AM
Take a picture of the hole your putting it thru so i can confirm your placement and if body tub is original.

Questions: Is it for 24 volt
Question By: Troy haberichter on Jun 28 2018 3:27 AM
No, these are for 6 or 12 volt. The 24 volt were on the starter itself. We have them as well.

Questions: 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
Question By: Chris on Apr 5 2018 3:27 PM
It only gives power when pressed down with your foot. Once you release your foot on the button, its off.

Questions: 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

Questions: 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?
Question By: Richard Terwilliger on Sep 28 2016 2:09 PM
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.

Questions: 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.
Question By: Anonymous on Nov 21 2014 12:00 AM
The starter switch doesn't really have anything to do with + or - ground.

Questions: 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
Question By: Ricky on Jun 4 2013 12:00 AM
It goes to the right of the accelerator pedal. You will have holes in your floor board to mount it.

Questions: 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?
Question By: Bruce on Dec 15 2010 12:00 AM
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.
