Re: Ignition Switch re-wire



Tim you`ll ned to insert the blade of a screw driver, like one they use for eye glasses repair into the end of the connecter gently, this end shown here where the small rectangle portion is and the wire and brass end should just slide out, and place it into your stock connector into the corresponding slot.
The other two pics shown are just for clarification to show the small tabs that lock the connectors in place, your just pushing these down slightly to clear the connector.

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Hmmmm......I better get my 56 wiring done. I got the American Autowire kit. It sure seems a lot easier than this, came with correct (I think) connectors, and new ignition, and headlight switch. So far, everything has seemed to snap into place.

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Would the ends I remove from the black and white connectors just clip into the stock connector? It seems I could cut each wire, attach a female end, and connect each wire to the pins on the stock connector. Is that right? Thanks for all the input here!

Should just slip right out of the new connector and right into your old one with no issues, if done right no more than five minutes total time.

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Ahhh. I really can't explain why my mind went there...to cutting wires. Since I have both ends of the connectors, re-pinning will be the right way. Thanks you guys!

The de-pin project was a success. However, here are the wires I have left
Red= Power
Pink= Coil
Black= ??
Purple= Start

The ignition switch has:
SOL Is that the coil wire?
G2
G1 Black wire?
Batt (two side by side)

With this info., can you guys help me figure out where the remaining wires go? Thanks!!

Re: Ignition Switch re-wire

Well? Any takers? Mostly, if I can find out what SOL means and if that is the coil, and what two wires go to Batt I'd be making progress.
