Anyone have a up close real time picture of the which wires go where to the on/off switch ? When I turn my switch on, nothing happens.

Mark, no offense but you are way off. Dead Batteries ? Um NO. I have a wiring issue.

Cranks but no fire. Which side (looking at it, does #5) bolt to the floor starter switch. Left or right ?


Looking at the on/off switch, where does the two #11 wires go on one side and a #12 and a #27 on the other side. The #12 should be going to the distributor. But looking at it where do these wires go. ??


I did have a small melt down on the battery post for 1 second. I was on top and ready for it. . Did I damage anything under the disturber cap. Coli or condenser maybe ??

The battery and cable from harness are on one starter terminal and the starter cable is connected to the other starter terminal.
As was said before the 2 number 11 wires are connected to A&C of the gnition switch .
The remaing two wires are connected to B&D.
You may need a magnifier to see the letters.

Wire #10 joins #5 at the starter button. That was what messed me up.
