Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Thanks, Rich. By schematics, do you mean a diagram? I have a couple diagrams myself. If that's the case, I can look myself!!

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Tim, SOL. Means solenoid on the starter. I don't know about all makes of cars even though I suspect their the same. There is a separate hot wire for when the engine is starting, then when the Solenoid kicks out and the engine fires there's a ignition wire that kicks in to keep the engine running. If the solenoid wire was to stay "HOT" the starter would remain turning the starter.

Thanks, for the explanation, Bagged. If I understand correctly, the Purple "Start" wire would go to the SOL or do would that wire be one of the battery pins?
Pink= Coil
Black= ??
Purple= Start

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

I thoroughly confused myself with this ignition switch project. Having the HEI and not a coil ignition, plus the after market wires messed me up. Here is a photo I borrowed that I believe is what I need.

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Tim, I'm not sure what all you need to go thru. With the American Autowire kit I bought for my 56 Chevy, I got a new ignition switch, and the wiring that hooks up to it was all in one clip, that just pushed on and clicked.

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

I'm hoping to have a buddy scalp the piece from a salvage yard.

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

i am surprised to here this from a product from LMC. ive spent a lot of money out of there 88 to 98 catalog, and 99 percent fit like a glove. but the one problem i had,i just called. e mails may not convey the serious nature of your call. i have found that sometimes it just takes a good ol heart to heart, with the refund or correct part in the mail. someone there is smart enough to tell you exactly what you need to hear,you just have to get with that one. if it doesnt fit in 2 minutes, you need the correct part. my .02

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

To clarify, LMC offers the EZ Wire Kit, but they don't manufacture it. I emailed the guy from EZ Wire. He was nice enough and tried to help, but the bottom line is; some kits come with connectors, and EZ Wire does not. HOWEVER!! I am so happy I may tear up. I found a connector for under $10.00 at http://www.repairconnector.com!!!
