I've got a CL65 Ford Skid Steer. I need a new ignition switch and fuel gauge.

Fuel Gauge: Old one is totally gone. It's a 2" round hole. There's tons of generic ones on eBay. Are these things generally electrically the same? Mine has 4 terminals labeled Fuel, S, I, G. S to the sender, G to Ground, Fuel & I both wired to ACC.

Ignition Switch: 4 position switch. Off, ACC, Start, and a counter-clockwise spring return Pre-Heat position that fires the glow plugs. 5 terminals on the back. I found the exact part on eBay for about $80 (it's the same switch as on the 1xxx series of Ford tractors), but that seems crazy. There's a bunch of "4 position with preheat Ford Tractor ignition switches" on ebay for around $10 . Example: Are those compatible?

The fuel gauge and it's sender have to be electrically compatable. An aftermarket gauge may for may not match your sending unit. The resistance in the sender is important, as well as terminals. It's a gamble, gauge with sender is best.

The cheaper switch might work. You might have to change some wires around. Your switch may have heavier contacts. Something is likely different. The Yesterday's Tractor store has the switch for less than $80, it is more than $10 though.
