Connecticut Ignition/Light Switch Diagram

Does anyone have a diagram of the terminals on the back of the ignition/light switch mechanism the A22s like mine used? Or could someone with a similar unit kindly look at how there's is numbered and tell me? Mine had been bypassed, and I'm trying to put it back to original. Your assistance is appreciated.

Hi Todd,

Have you looked at the A-22 electrical wiring diagram in our technical page...The diagram shows the early coil with integral condenser, disreguard that portion if you have a modern coil and external condenser.

Re: Connecticut Ignition/Light Switch Diagram

I am having a bear of a time trying to figure out my switch assembly wiring. I have consulted the tech page diagram and am still having no luck. Electrical always gets me to my wit's end. Can a fellow A-22 owner tell me how the back of their switch is wired, provide a picture, or a numerical explanation? The connections on the back of the switch are numbered, but I have been unable to find a key to explain the numbering. I also have pictures of my switch I could post here, but do not know how. I appreciate any assistance that can be provided. Thank you!

I should had here too: the diagram from the tech sections shows a negative ground system with one wire to each headlight. I have a positive ground system with two wires/bulbs per headlight.

Hi Todd.....

I think all the Durant products where negative ground. At least all mine are.

Do your headlights have 2 filaments? (high and low beam)

My A-22 dash is apart so I can't help with the wire locations. I had a new wire harness made, but it confirms to the published diagrams.

Did you check with Gord or Will Curl or Bill Hoglan? They have A-22's also.

Re: Connecticut Ignition/Light Switch Diagram

Frank- I'm not sure why my car is set up to be positive ground, but I'm going to change it over to negative ground soon. I have two bulbs, each single filament, in each of my headlights.

Ken- I mailed a self addressed stamped envelope to you today. I appreciate you sendingme a copy of your diagram.
