Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: What Model T does this fit?

Just purchased this on eBay because it is VERY similar to my 1917 Maxwell. It was listed as fitting a Model T Ford. Is it really for a Model T? If so, what does it fit?

Looks like some kind of aftermarket ignition switch that uses a Yale or similar brand, key

The key is a Clum, but is it designed to fit a Model T?

Not Model T, but could be used for one if the key has two ON positions for MAG and BAT. The terminals aren't all marked.

Dodge Brothers used Clum keys.

The first T switches were Clums. Clum even had a keyboard like a Ford keyboard, with their own numbers. The switch pictured above is for an early 1919 with a wood dashboard. I have one that is the same, except it is nickel plated, and has the Ford script in the usual place. It uses a Clum #16 key.

Thanks Larry, so am I correct in assuming this is a New old stock switch that would be correct for a proper restoration of a 1919 Ford? Or, is it an aftermarket replacement? I ask because if it's correct for someones Ford restoration I won't consider it as a parts source for my Maxwell but will instead try to find someone who needs it for their Ford.

I don't see a contact for the mag wire on that switch. If it were for a T, it should have that.

Would appear that you have a Clum 10062.

I had one of those about 10 years ago that I put on the wood dash of my distributor sparked speedster.
I have never seen another like it, until now.
Since mine came from a guy near San Jose I suspect that it came from a Chris Craft since there are a lot of boats and boat repair places near San Jose.

All those trucks that used it and I never heard of one of them.

It seems like a nice ignition and light switch for a speedster.
