I got no key with the machine and I’m trying to figure out how to wire the switch out of the system. I’m not sure what they are trying to say in this diagram. I may attempt to drill out the tumblers so the switch will work without a key.

I think connecting the black and red (and leaving the other two disconnected) will let it start. It also has a neutral and reverse light. Pretty neat. The diagram appears to match what I see on the rig, but I don’t have the remote switch. Mine has a pull type disconnect like guys use on racing rigs to shut it off if you fall off. Except it has never been used, the tiewrap is still on the cord. It is under the seat at the back. (You always fall off backwards, right?)

That's some sort of special wiring diagram that's for sure! Lol. Alot of times with those cheap key switches you can take them apart fairly easily to remove the lock and tumbler then use any small key or screwdriver.

Good idea. I can unplug the switch and bring it in here to work on. Something different from solitaire.

Thanks for the help @brianator !

I disassembled the switch (had to cut the locks at the rear of the case), removed the innards and put it back together without the tumblers. 3 drops of super glue fixed the cut locks so the thing stays together.

The wiring diagram seems to be correct. When the switch is off the red/black connection is open.

When the switch is on, the Red/black connection is closed. Opposite true for the other two (black and white/green) That is a terrible diagram, but it appears to work.

… then I ran out of something to do. So, I found an old key and filed it to shape to fit snugly in the keyhole. DONE!
