I find that the ignition switch procusts by Cole Hersee have been durable and have been used by myself on boats for over 50 years. I just restored a 18' 1955 chriscraft that had the same switch installed when built and it has lasted 55 years. Replacement was because of key problems, switch still works well

THE THREADED BARREL IS ROUND, THE LOCK I REPLACED HAD A FLAT SPOT ON ONE SIDE OF THE LOCK SO THAT IT WOULD NOT SPIN IN THE MOUNTING HOLE IF IT BECAME LOOSE. I HAD TO REAM OUT THE FLAT SPOT IN THE MOUNTING HOLE TO MAKE THE NEW LOCK FIT.

Rivet holding down terminal bent during installation. two of the three terminals have two rivets to attach them to the housing, but for some reason one has only one.

Boat in NewEngland, switch lasted one season, did not make it thru the winter even thou the switch was oiled prior to winter storage. Key locks up and entire barrel spins, very annoying, will not buy again.
