Default L185 ignition switch

I was having problems starting the tractor and narrowed it down to the ignition switch. I have had the tractor for at least 4 years and I've never used the lights because they didn't work , I really wasn't worried about it. So back to the switch. I took it out and it has 5 terminals but all the wires were on 3 terminals? The switch is a universal I think because it says made in Mexico on it. No wonder the lights don't work!
So I am looking for a diagram for the switch so I can get the right one. If anyone has that info I would really appreciate it.

Thanks pat

Go to KubotaBooks.com and download the WSM, it has the schematic in it.

Thanks, great site for reference over there.

Now to find the right ignition switch. It appears kubota has a proprietary switch for the l185.
$ 65. To $85. I guess that's why there was a universal switch in there.

I have attempted to send the schematic to you but let me know if you didnít get it. And send a PM with your email address since I forgot to ask last time.

I use tap a talk and see what youíre saying but I thought that was sending a PM not e-mail. You are saying that goes to the personís actual email address?
