My M has been acting weird lately. It will just stop for no reason but up until today has started right back up. Today I shut it off for lunch and it wouldn't start when I got back. I quick pull the plug in the carb and had lots of gas. I went back to the shop and got a volt meter and started checking around.Only a couple of volts to the distributor so I'm thinking the resistor has gone bad. When I check there was no voltage to it either so I went back to the switch. 12 volts in, nothing coming out. Its just a push/pull switch and was replaced a few years ago when one of the connectors rusted off. I starting playing with the switch and suddenly got voltage. Turns out if you turn the switch there are dead spots in it. I happened to find a spot that would work. I didn't think those things could do that. Next time I order some parts I guess I will have to buy one.

I first spray a healthy dose of PB Blaster all around the shafts and entry ports, and the push-pull areas. It removes corrosion, lubes, removes moisture, etc. Does wonders for all my electrical items. Me, I'd try PB first.

Those original type switches can be taken apart and refurbished, but it is probably easier to just get a new one.

My loader M started that, wouldn't start, i just rotated it and it discharged, and back to life. But that switch had lasted about 15 years !!
