I didn't expect a response so quickly. You must be a 'night owl' up so early in the AM!
My engine is a NA 8V71 of the 70's vintage. No electronics. I'm going to need (4) solenoids (24VDC) a buffer switch and a clutch
switch, although there are differing opinions about the clutch switch..but my thought is that if the Engineers who designed this thing
felt one was necessary...that's why they included it.
I was studying the wiring diagram...http://www.bernhardbus.com/jakeinfo.htm
and looking at the selector switch for switching either one bank or both and I find an error in the second diagram unless the selector has the ability to energize two poles of the switch at the same time. Down, would be "off" deenergizing the top pole. Center position would conceivably switch in one bank (energizing the
top pole (?) ) and Up should only energize the lower pole and switch back to one bank. Or that's the most cleverly designed switch I've ever seen!
My mechanic tells me that a simple On/Off switch is the best and most simple situation on a Detroit because when you want 'em...
use 'em all. Being two cycle the RPM's will fade rather quickly. Concur?
If you can lead me in the right direction for the solenoids and clutch switch I'd be appreciative. I understand that there's a new (encapsulated) buffer switch....and the seller mentioned that he didn't have a required bracket for the governor housing.
Thanks for the comeback
