Wiring diagram for a rigid frame with a shovelhead engine

i doubt that one exists for a assembled bobber. but dude all you need are 3 wires on ignition switch 1 from the batt. 1 to the coil 1 to the lights if you want to rewire your bike (kick start only) very simple..1st post on the ignition switch (key switch), 1 wire, from the battery to the ignition. on the second post (key switch), 1 wire from the top post on the coil, (note on the bottom post of the coil another wire goes to your points), on the top post of the coil add 1 wire to one side of the brake light switch, then another wire from the other side of the brake light switch to the brake light, 3rd post (key switch), 2 more wires, 1 to the head light, 1 to the tail light (if you want high beam run a extra off the 3rd post to the hi lo switch then 1 from the hi lo switch to the head lights high beam wire)
last 1 wire from the regulator back to the battery.
you have just rewired your bike. if you have a electric starter then just add another from the 2cnd post (key switch) to the starter button, then 1 from the starter button back to the solenoid.

Can I run 110 /14 2 from a light switch down to power a 110 plug receptacle

Hi Don,

Shut the power off.

Inspect the switch.

If the switch has two cables (2 black & 2 white wires) which would indicate that power enters the switch on one cable and supplies the light through the switch on the other cable, you can supply a new outlet so that it can be on all the time or controlled by the switch. Either way, you'll need to run a 14/2 cable from the new outlet to the existing switch box. Connect the bare ground wire to all the other bare ground wires by adding it to the bundle in a wirenut; and connect the white wire (neutral) to the other two whites under a wirenut.

Power back on.

Using a meter or tester; carefully determine which of the black wires on the switch is "on" all time and which is turned "on and off" by the switch. Indicate which is which on the wire with tape, or other marker.

Power off.

Remove the wire you want to supply the outlet.

Cut a short (8" or so) length of insulated (black, red or blue in color) #14 copper wire & strip 3/4" off each end. Combine one end of this short wire, the original switch wire, and the black from new 14/2 cable together under a wirenut..

Connect the other end of the short black wire to the switch and put everything back together again.

Power back on.

The outlet will either be on all the time - or turn on and off by the position of the switch. You're done!

I hope this helps - if it was not the answer you were expecting, please describe how you want the switch, light & new outlet to work in greater detail.

I can start the car with the key. but when its time to shut off the car. key just turns and i can remove the key but the car still running.

You know how it goes the neck bone connected to the breast bone and so on well your key cylinder is connected to a sector gear which is connected to a rack with a rod that is connected to the electrical ignition switch. Well the sector gear and rack is your problem here for the gearing is stripped. A dealer or locksmith will be a good sourse to take it to

Have an older Craftsman rider model #143.961300. Mower starts when turn key on but will not turn off when key is set to off. LSF

It sound like the wire that connects the ignition system to the starter switch and then to the tractor ground has failed, easiest way to test this is while the engine is off install a 12" piece of 12 gauge wire with both ends stripped about 3/4" between the sparkplug cap and sparkplug and being very careful that you do not touch the bare wire start the engine up and then touch the bare end of the wire you just installed to a good ground and see if the engine quits if it does somewhere between the ignition modual and ground the circuit has opened up, likly candidate would be the key switch. Hope this helps Don
