  1. 312-8 Ignition Wiring - Amateur Fix

    Thank you everyone. It was a simple thing and what I believed in the end but as it was my first go at this I am glad I consulted you all. Now to get started on the loose choke cable and throttle! While you are all here, does anywhere know where you can get decal designs to replace old ones that faded etc. Even if you can get pdfs of them etc.

    Hi Garry, so the one i have labelled red and is already connected is the pink - Thanks for clearing up. B Terminal -Red from the battery should that be both remaining red wires- as if not I still have the smaller red wire not connected to anything. Thanks B
  3. 312-8 Ignition Wiring - Amateur Fix

    Hey all, thanks for all your help. Here is where I am at now. The only problem I have now is still working out which of my remaining three wires goes where. They were all tangled around the 2 remaining circled connections. I believe (correct me if I am wrong) that I need to put the white by itself onto B. Then connect the think and thin red onto A. I have attached images of the old ignition (burnt to a crisp but was still working previously) and drawn in the original wire connections. I have written in the colours of the wires and on the new ignition the letters on the connectors. I have looked over both diagrams you have all send over and this is the conclusion I have come to. However I am a novice so may be complete incorrect. B Image 1 - New Connector with Coloured Wire notations and Connector labels (Purple) - Remaining connectors circled in pink, Image 2 - Old Connector with former connections labelled. Remaining connectors circled in pink. Image 3 - Old wire loom with the 3 melted wires over 2 connection points circled

  5. 312-8 Ignition Wiring - Amateur Fix

    Howdy Folks, I am hoping one of you knowledgeable lot will be able to help me out. I am fixing, as a surprise for my father, the ignition (that he took apart initially!) on our Wheel Horse 312-8. As we are in the UK we have struggled to get the ignition and loom which would have made this slightly easier. as the previous loom had melted slightly and a few wires came 'melted together'. And it is here where my problem lies. I have managed to get an ignition from a reputable provider here in the UK, but failed to get the loom. After visiting various local dealers they recommended I just connect the wires using spade connectors. From images of the ignition prior, I have been able to connect most of the wires into the new ignition with ease however where some of the wires were twisted and burned together I am struggling to work out which wires go to the remaining terminals. I have found various manuals (most helpful one attached) and think I have followed them well. However I am left over with a small red wire of which I am unsure as to where it goes. The three wires I was left with were: a white wire, a large red wire, and a small red wire. I know that the small red one but join either the big red or the white but I am unsure. What I would have ideally is someone being able to send across a photo to ensure that I can't get this wrong or to be able to say definitively where it joins. Furthermore if you can see any basic errors you feel I may have made an help on that would be graciously accepted. This is my first post but as I try to fix more and more parts it certainly won't be my last! Hope you can help gang!
