Original PLC5 switch vs new one
« on: August 05, 2022, 01:33:18 PM »
I have a 1947 C11 which I am restoring.  The original ignition switch was broken beyond repair so I bought a new one.  However the terminals on the rear differ.  On the original, going clockwise there is F2, blank, D, blank, F1, H, A, T, L and centrally the IG terminal with a blank next to that.  The only ones connected to wires where the H, A, T, L, IG and D.

The new PLC5 has A (where the D is on the old one) H, blank, T, L and IG.  So clearly I'm missing the D

Any ideas how I wire up the new PLC5 so that the bike will work correctly?

I asked a similar question on the forum a year or so ago and got  lots of advice and easily resolved the issue ...but done a quick search and can't find it- perhaps you'll have better luck
