ENGINE START SWITCH

Post by NOTHING ELSE MATTERS » Wed Oct 17, 2018 6:53 pm

Hello, anyone knows what kind of engine start switches are on the 9 meter and maybe all the other Trojans?
I do not have key for ignition on, just a switch for each engine.
Looks like the switch is OFF-ON-MOM.ON but what kind is it?
Thank you.

Non of the above the SPDT and the DPDT are normally on-off-on , the SPST is on off . You need a Off / On / Momentary On . it could be single or double pole but you would only use 1 pole . I have seen them called off-on-start before but the right name is Off / On / Momentary On
