I have taken many a 2 cyl. switch apart and with a little care and cleaning is all most needed.

I bought the high priced switch from deere and also put on a new brillman wire harness. It worked for about a week then smoked out from inside the switch. The off and front lights section works but the run and rear lights don't. I replaced the coil, condenser, points, spark plugs, plug wires, rotor, and check my wiring for leaks probably a half dozen times and I am still not getting fire to the plugs. I have another switch, dist cap and starter button on order to complete the upgrade. I am just running out of time for this weekend. Thanks for all the input. I think I will run the JD 60 if it doesn't crap out on me when I give it a pre-parade workout today. Thanks

When taking the handle off a switch I use a Delta faucet handle puller, you can get them at Home Depot or Lowes for a couple bucks, they work great the stem goes down into, but not on the thread and the bails fit under the handle so you don't pull the switch shaft out prying on it..just a helpful hint stumbled onto a few years ago...
