Part of the reason I was going to use a push button (or solenoid) is because I have two brand new ignition switches here - with thermostart -that I bought on Ebay a couple of years ago. But the bloody things are not right. The neck that goes through the cowel is too small of a diameter so the whole darned switch turns when you turn the key. Grrr

Actually the switch size is correct and you have a tractor with an enlarged hole in the sheet metal. This is a real pain. You can washer it back and tighten the crapola out of it to keep it from turning on you. Even better is to tack the washers in place with a wire welder. The aftermarket switches are cheap but usually do okay for 5 or 10 years. Not the same quality as oem, but for 15 bucks, what do you expect. These aftermarket switches usually have the glow plug activated on a right turn and past "on", but just before "crank".
What's even more interesting is on the gas models, they do not support "ignition" during "crank", so you must have a correctly wired bypass jumper from the selenoid to the coil or it will not fire during a crank cycle, but then fire only when you release the switch back to "run".
