    Does anyone know if there is a faceplate for the ignition switch on an FE35 with the following positions marked.

    Off - On - Heat - Heat Start

    I have tried all the usual suppliers without success.

    This is the one that I have seen.

    the one from the dutch company shows the same type as the op has shown. it dosen't have an on position but a 35 shouldn't have an on position, just off, start, heat and heat start

    Thanks Andy
    I will check the original switch to make sure I got the positions correct.
    Maybe they changed the switch when they did alternator conversion

    yes if it has had an alternator fitted then it will need an on position so not sure if you will get a back plate

    Twist the key left for heat and start, right for just plain start. Think I got my switch from either Acorn tractor spares or Silverfox, it may even have been Mayhill tractor spares, certainly one of the 3!!!

    It's had an alternator conversion so guessing it will now have a switch with an on position

    ah!!! Missed that bit!! Maybe have a look at 165 or suchlike, guess the faceplates/switch would be sorted for running with an alternator.

    Surely the backplate pictured is correct?

    Key normally sits at the 'O' (I think of it as OFF) position.

    Turn slightly left (not a click position) to the 'H' or Heat position.

    Turn all the way left for the 'H-S' or Heat and Start position.

    Turn key right from the O position for a summer start to the 'S' position.

    But mine isn't an FE35 so maybe they're different.

    Yes it is correct for a standard 35 but this has had an alternator conversion so it has had the switch changed
