I have what appears to be a Model T ignition switch. The key hole shows ď44.Ē I thought the Model T keys went from 51-74.
Apologies for my ignorance, but is this a switch for a Model T and what key is used with the 44?
Also, I donít have a fuse on my other two Model Tís. What is the fuse for?
Not Model T and I believe the fuse protected the ignition circuit - that appears to be the 'hot" wire in.
Eric: I have one similar with #42 key. Briggs & Stratton made switchgear for many customers, including Ford. This is not Ford, 44 key is not in Ford inventory, but some of the parts might work in a Ford switch rebuild, that's how I'm using the one I have. jb
Some of the internal parts and the switch handle might work but the back cover would be missing the terminal for the magneto contact.
Not Ford but a switch for some other car. It's worth a lot to the guy who needs one for his restoration of the vehicle he's restoring!
If this is a Clum 10491, it is 1926 Star.
It appears to be a Briggs and Stratton switch.
With that keyway and #44, I think it might be for a 1919-21 Maxwell. I have a key for it, if it is.
Most likely a #44 is a Clum key. Their numbers go lower than Fords. I have a Clum switch from a 1919 sedan, and it has a #18, and the Ford script.
If you look closely at the photo of the back of the switch, it appears that it is stamped diagonally in the lower right hand corner,

I think that these #44 Briggs and Stratton keys for a 1919-21 Maxwell will fit that switch.
Clum 10421. #84 key.
Mr. Vogel is another source of info for keys for switches.
