Default Battery combiner switch fell apart

I flipped the switch that combines the house and engine start batteries and it just fell apart. I found the plastic switch cover, two springs, and a small metal post...that's it. I don't know how it goes back together again, so I would much prefer to replace the switch. Does anyone know a source or a manufacturer/model number for the switch? It is a momentary on-off-on type switch. Thanks!

Neal, I have an old NAPA catalog (I worked for Echlin, their switch mfgr).
Are both 'on' positions momentary? Or is one momentary, and one regular 'on'?

Dupree products has some switches. I don't know if it is the right one though

One position is momentary and one position is on (as you put, regular on). Thanks Marc!

Diego, that is a SPST switch (on/off).

Neal,

Do you use the cold start? If not, I think that is a momentary switch that you would swap until you find the right one.

That's a tough one for sure!

I found one in my catalog but the part# is apparently discontinued. I found the latest version of the catalog online and it does not include switch specs! (Even the catalogs are not made like the used to be).

Here's one I found elsewhere. Don't know if the blades match, or if it matches cosmetically, but worth a look...they do include a pdf spec sheet:

I think thats an Eaton switch, Datasheet here:
https://www.alliedelec.com/m/d/8de62...0ef3c0bb7c.pdf

I think its a 1607, (on) off on, () is momentary..

Couldnt find one though!

You could put in a (on) off or on off if you can find one, that combiner is on when your running anyway ;}


HTH, Joe

Another common terminology (depending on how you install it) is:

SPDT

on/off/mom-on

or

mom-on/off/on

I don't know if he still has them but Stephen Birtles used to stock them.
