I am in the process of completely re-wiring my Suburban I have managed to get everything done except the coil kill wire. I am not really sure where it goes on the coils as there was no wire on it the PO had everything hacked up.

DB suburban or Sears (Roper) suburban?

I'm assuming Sears (Roper),
The wire electrically shorts the points together. Physically, it goes from the wire connection on the condenser back to the ignition switch. Grounds out for kill.

I have also seen them connect to the points, but I'm pretty sure that was a "custom wiring job" even tho it did work.

You do have the OEM switch in there, right?

Yes, I purchased a new switch with the big copper lugs. So I just run the wire from the switch to the condenser ?

Yep, if it's the Roper style Suburban with the points, thats where mine went and it looked original.

If you look at the mount plate for the engine shroud, do you have a piece of plastic mounted at the 8:00 position?

If so, the wire goes there and another to the condenser.

yes that is where the wire from the points and condenser is attached to, the only thing they had right on the entire tractor, lol

We posted at the same time, sorry.

The plastic is an insulator. If it was metal, it'd just be a short & you'd never get spark.

If you think yours is brittle, some of the really old ones had bakelite. All the worst properties of plastic & glass in one substance.
