Re: Push button starter switch?

Muddog, you've got to have MINIMUM of three swtiches to do the job. The OEM ignition swtich will do the job of all three swtiches, plus remove any other high current load that's on. So, at minimum you've got to duplicate:

1. The first switch will apply voltage to the starter solenoid.
2. The second switch switches 12 volts to the coil.
3. The third swtich switches out the 8.7 volts from the load resistor or wire resitor.

So the question is, as you are going to leave the OEM key swtich in place is it functional to swtich the coil voltage from full to 8.7 volts?
