New member and first time post. I've just started restoring a 72 cub and would like to get it close to OEM as possible, so I'm looking to get the neutral switch working. The picture in the parts catalog is very helpful. Does anybody still have a working, close to OEM, that could provide a pic of what the actuating looks like installed? Great forum BTW.

I assume you are talking about a 154. Depends on serial number. Your '72 would most likely be above serial number 21492.

Check Ref #14 in the illustration.

Thanks for responding. K-Mo, no, not a 145. International Harvester Cub. gene bender, the neutral switch and a starting solenoid was affixed to a bracket that was positioned under the platform/deck, just behind the clutch. The solenoid was actuated by key ignition on the instrument panel/hood support. The neutral switch was installed between the ignition switch and the started solenoid. The neutral switch prevented the start of the motor unless the clutch was pushed down, pushing in the plunger of the neutral switch. What I'm looking for is the lever/plate (called an actuating spring in the parts catalog that was attached to the clutch in some manner that actually pushed against the plunger when the clutch was depressed. I can probably come up with what will work, but was hoping that someone actually had one that still existed on their cub, and can provide a picture. My operators manual, dated 1971, doesn't show the switch, solenoid or wiring involved, so it must be something added in 1972 as a safety feature.
The clutch is on the right.
