    Another member posted this template quite a while back. I’ve always wanted to build one but never got around to it. It looks pretty straight forward though.

  8. If you are using the 2 original coils then one of them connects to the grey and red/white wires to the left in the picture and the other coil is connected to the orange and red/white wires to the right. You may need to change the grey and orange connectors to male bullets to suit the coils' female bullet connectors. Can you post a picture of the coil connectors?

    Thanks dude !
     
  12. Wait! I take all that back. Your comments are correct. Tie the red/white wire together to eliminate the kill switch and for the start switch connect the blue/white wire to one side and ground the other. Your start switch needs to be momentary.
