That is why I need the diagram of the internal positions of the OEM switch.  Most wiring diagrams show that but not for the 1476.


OK - Here goes:


The 1476-01 uses the # 1721409 ignition switch, which was also used on several models of the tube-frames.


Look at the 1476-01 wiring diagram here.


The switch terminals are marked: S - B - A - Y - X


The internal connections for the # 1721409 key switch are:


Position 1 (OFF) no connections made


Position 2 (RUN) A+B connected together  also   X+Y connected together


Position 3 (START) B+S connected together  also  X+Y connected together

Hi Bruce.  Thank a ton for this information.  Now I can go searching for a switch that will match up those connections.  I have one for the 1053 from Napa but don't remember the Bolens part number right off.  The NAPA number is 7-01854.  I put it on a year ago and has worked fine ever since.  Cost me $14.  Only thing when going this route one has to remove the wires from the block and re-arrange them to the switch.  I think most that have tried this just use the block and plug it on the switch and the start don't work that way.


Will let you know when and if I come up with something.  The 1053 information was in a topic back in Nov. of 14  "Coil Wired Backwards And It Still Ran".


Thanks again,
