Ok, I'm slow a little.

1)Battery (+) to Solenoid

2)Battery (+) to 20 amp fuse to B terminal on switch

3)Wire from the one post on solenoid to S terminal on key switch

4)Rectifier hot wire (12 v) to 20 amp (maybe less?) Fuse to L terminal on key switch

5)Magneto wire to M terminal on switch as before

6)Run ground wire to G terminal on switch

7)Crank it up. Check the ground to make sure nothing is shorting out.

8)Have hot wire from battery run to inline fuse then to the Light switch. Have ground run to the G terminal on key switch?


Sound about right?

Don't think you need the (G) Ground to the switch. This is usually for a kill wire for non-point magnetos.

Well the key switch is mounted in the fiberglass dash so it has to have a ground. Just remembered

Based on the diagram you posted at the beginning it shows points. You need to know which you have.

Points / Coil, the kill is accomplished by removing power to the (I) terminal (Ignition)

For a Magneto, the kill is accomplished by grounding the (M) terminal (Magneto) 

 

You will fry a magneto if you apply power to the kill wire.

Ok well I got the magneto to the M terminal...so far it's throwing out spark.

Main thing was my carb was shot and I couldn't keep engine running. Got a new carb now.
