Hi everyone,
Thanks for the info! So I'm guessing my assumption is correct, I would need some sort of 'ignition switch'. The tractor will have lights (once rewired and fixed) and does have electric start - but not a key switch. It was my understanding that all DC's has the starter button under the dash and gauges? It seems like all the conversion articles deal with tractors that have a distributor - and thus an 'ignition switch'.

Bob - do you have a part number or a picture of the open oil pressure switch? Sounds like a great idea. Perhaps if i did use a ignition 'switch' I could wire in a warning light like are on the Diesels... reminder to turn the switch off. That's how I always remembered to turn the keys of on our 30's series tractors.

I bought several on ebay. Had to have them posted here from the US. Just search normally open pressures switch.

They were a few dollars each. I looked at the proper Hobbs switches but they were over $50 each here and I have had them fail in the past, so I thought I would try the cheap ones. So far they are OK.
