I accidentally arced across two wires.....right above/beside the top coil there is a little square thing(what is it?) that has 4 connectors on it. I accidentally arced ground to the red wire on top. Now the key wont turn the motor over nor will it engage the electric choke. I still have over 12 v running up the red wire thats connected to the B terminal on the rear of the switch. if i jump 12 v to the yellow wire on S terminal the motor will crank....if i turn key nothing happens....Its a bad ignition switch right?
That little black thing is your rectifier. If you grounded the red wire, you either popped your circuit breaker or blew a fuse. If you have a circuit breaker, it should be on the left side of t he engine behind the starter. If it is the resetable type, there is a button on the top that you push to reset it.
the breaker flipped and i fixed it. When the breaker is kicked there is no power sent to the ignition switch. After i fixed the breaker i have power all way back to the ignition on the red wire. There is only one hot wire at the ignition switch right?
