Looks good K.
Those are hard to find. So often people removed them to get under there and never replaced them so they were lost. A lot of guys don't even know they should be on there.
I have a few sets of those. If I ever get a tractor that has them I never let them go if I sell it. Have some for 2/3000s and a set or two for the 4000s which are different. They go into "private stock".
I don't know what went into the hole in the dash under the ignition switch though from the factory they had a push in plug. They are too small for the optional cig lighter. Maybe a switch for extra lights or something. I have a heavy, rubber covered push button switch I'm going to install there to power the thermostart feature in the diesel intake manifold - one of these days.
Is your choke disconnected? The right two holes should have the light sw above and choke below. I see in the pic yours is missing there.
It doesn't matter if you have an N, Hundred or Thousand it's still fun and satisfying to tinker with them and get all of the oem doo dads back in place.
