The switches are not sealed and replacements seem to be made cheaper every year. They do get crudded-up inside and cause problems, especially with a 6 volt system. My 8N now has a sealed marine-grade toggle switch for the ignition. No need for a key to run that one. The 2N has a "just like original" ignition switch from Dennis Carpenter that appeared to be made much better than the one it replaced.
