Line Lock electrical

setting up a front wheel 'line lock' for occasional burnout box use. Is the switch at shifter typically momentary or a toggle SPST ? .

thanks

They are a push button "Momentary" Switch, some of the shifter knobs like a T handle can have them built in. The button holds or locks the front brakes for as long as you hold the button down. Good luck :nod:

Current project is a 1988 John Deere 420 Garden Tractor I need a few small parts to get it fixed, plus some cosmetic items, maybe a few attachments, if you happen to have or know of JD 420 parts would welcome the help!

A line lock allows you to take up all the backlash in the drive line. It is a life saver for diffs & transmissions.
