Jim, did they all have the same key, and is it available? If someone just lost the original key on mine, maybe I could put it back stock, as the original switch and button are still there

Switch is easy to get to and replace.Just take panel with gauges out and is easy to reach.

Thanks D, mine is where your cigarette lighter is, maybe easier to get to then yours.
Jim, mine was definitely a replacement, probably from a vehicle, cause it had too many positions. Working OT today and Friday, ill get back to it soon.

Mine also has the aftermarket switch where the lighter was, made me suspect that someone lost the original key and did a workaround

Looking closely I notice you have a different light switch. I have the silver 3 position turn knob. Of course it doesn't work.

When I was doing tractor I couldn't find a three position knob so I put in a three position push- pull switch. I now know where to get
original switch so some day when I have time I will change it out.

So, are the original keys available? I would like to see if mine could work with the original switch and push button

IH used the exact same ignition key from the 450 all the way through to the end in 1985.

Current IH part number is 131313C1 and if you give an experienced locksmith the code "A1146" they can program their key cutting machine to cut one for you.
