Does anyone have a diagram of how a key switch 's contacts work when the key is turned. I am working on a 1256, switch # 1721 409.
Here is what is shown in the tube frame manual - hope this helps.Does anyone have a diagram of how a key switch 's contacts work when the key is turned. I am working on a 1256, switch # 1721 409.
Yes, it is correct that the TRA12D used 2 different Solid State Ignition types. However the factory wiring from the ignition switch was the same regardless. The only wire from the factory harness that connects to any part of the ignition system is the kill wire, which connects the negative side of the coil. Wisconsin later recommended that a separate, independent kill switch be used to avoid any possible stray voltage from the original ignition switch reaching the ignition coil.Some of those are wired different, depending in what type of ignition the TRA12 has. There were 2 different types of solid state ignition on the TRA's, one was with only a stator under the flywheel and the other had the stator behind the flywheel and an ignition module that was typically screwed to the blower housing. Those two had completely different wiring from the ignition switch to the ignition coil and module.
Is this a Genuine Bolens switch? Last I knew there was a similar looking one in aftermarket but the internals of the switch are different .I am still adrift with this 1256 wiring. I see no way for that wiring diagram to work. When I turn the key on it puts power to the white wire that goes to ground near the voltage regulator and then the fuse is gone. This is a new key switch that I am using and I have read it out with a meter and all contacts make up like they should. I am at a loss on this one.
