My ignition switch just went out. Somewhere its missing contact within the switch. When you turn it forward you get nothing from the starter and the switch doesn't kick back into the run position. Like whatever spring that is in there is broke. I had to put it in the run position have someone else hold in the clutch and then jump the starter to get it to start. Has anyone replaced an ignition switch before? What should I look out for? Where would be the best place to get one?
