Would be more helpful to find the model of generator you are using and start from there.
That's how you would find out where to get a start switch/hour meter for it.

A picture would help as well. Look on the old switch to find who made it and maybe a part number.

Could be a simple DPDT toggle switch.

Take it out after making notes and photos.

Then look for an electronics supply not radio shack.

Many would have in Stock or be able to order.

Most can be repaired if you are clever.

I would bet it is going to be very close to this switch, as that was what my 97 Executive had in it.

I would venture to say that they have probably changed the switch quite a bit in 21 years! Most of the older units look like the ones Dave showed.
