I went into TSC tonight to buy a switch that would work with my Custom 7E. Found one that said Batt, Ign, Start. Great, & it even has screw terms... got to the end of my road b4 I realized I bought one for a coil ign, not spark kill.

Idiot. Left it in the car, return time.

Going back tomorrow, anyone know which one will work? All the other switches had 1/4" spade term. I may have to special order one or put in a solenoid.

You are in need of a switch with an"M" terminal on it. That will ground your ignition when the key is turned to the off position.

Thank You. My concern now is; will the start contacts hold up? The original switch had the batt & start wires directly on it. No solenoid.

The one you are looking for will have 4 terminal a "B" for battery, a "S" for solenoid, a "L" for light, the "M" for the wire from your Ing. Module. The "M" terminal will ground the ignition module when Key Off. The ground can be though the switch base or a designated terminal on the switch. Best to get the one that matches you harness. Does your harness have the ground wire in the plug? If not it is grounded thought the chassis.

It doesn't have a plug, it's 2 battery cables, 1 ign ground (kill) and a wire looped off the hot battery wire to ? I think to the lights? didn't chase that one.

Right, pretty heavy duty switch.
Here's the electrical system: http://www.searspart...34242-00003.png

I can order this online, but would rather buy it locally... any suggestions?

simply fixed with a toggle switch to ground, if you just want it to work.
