Ignition Switch

Looking for a momentary switch, stays off till pushed on, pic attached. Cole Herseey comes up with a bunch but all that does is confuse. What amp does a start switch need? Where to buy? All help appreciated.

The push button start switch only engages a start solenoid so huge amps are not needed.

Any of the C-H units rated as start switches should be fine. C-H is a best choice for mos boat t switches.

A 15 or 20 amp switch will work. It’s wired to the starter solenoid usually through a relay so it never sees the high amperage. Tractor Supply is a source as is most auto stores.
