    Default Ignition, Key Switch Question

    The Key switch on my PT-425 Moves. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
    It will spin when I try to start it or turn it off. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
    It doesn't move much, maybe 10 or 15 degrees of a 360 degree circle.
    I took the plate off last night and tried to tighten it. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] It was already tight, to the point that there are no more threads for the nut to tighten into. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
    Do I need to add a spacer of some sort to allow the nut that holds it tight to have more threads to use? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
    has anyone else had this problem?
    If so, how did you fix it?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Sounds like there might be a missing washer that should go between the nut and the panel. Most switches that are designed to panel mount come with one, often in the form of a star washer.

    I don't recall anyone else posting about this problem.

    Haven't had the problem on the PT but i have seen this before on these switches. Add the spacer or just back it off and slide something under it and tighten it back.
