The 3 Prong Safety Switch Pigtail is underway and going quickly. All of the parts were already here so it made sense to make some of these up while all the tools were out making the last batch of 520 fuse blocks and the new single fuse assy this week.

The housing is still available through Toro for now, part # 111498, but the wire connectors, or a pigtail assy was never available through Wheel Horse or Toro. These parts were used in a lot of Wheel Horse, Toro, and other brands of tractors over many years and is a unique configuration made only by 1 company as far as I know, and used only as a micro switch connector.

Since there were so many configurations and color changes over the years it made sense to make all the wires the same color to avoid any confusion. Yellow was chosen because it is usually the safety color for most everything. Some of these only used 2 wires as well but 3 were put in the housing so it would be a multi purpose part. If you don't need one of the wires you can simply remove it or cap it off.

The wire connectors and housing are from the same company as the original parts. The connectors are still Made in USA, unfortunately the housing has been moved offshore and made in China but there is no other manufacturer or option for this housing. The original harness used 18 gauge wire and since there were no problems with amp draw on the original we stayed with the same gauge. The wire used however was upgraded to top of the line Anchor Marine Grade 18 gauge pure copper pre tinned wire, Made in USA of course.

Below are some pics of the making of it here and the parts used. The plan is to have them in the store by tomorrow. :thumb1
