Ignition switch wiring help!

Post by 1949bug » Fri Feb 23, 2018 5:34 pm

Finally got the car to run after a 29 year sleep.

The ignition barrel was broken and someone pulled the wires and left them hanging below the dash plugged Incorrectly.

I can start the car with ignition on but only my manually contacting the solenoid wire directly on the starter.

Fitted is a Lucas 157sa (I assume is correct fitment)

Has positions

1 - 1 pin
5 - 2 pins
3- 2 pins
2 - 2 pins

I have 4 wire terminals

In the workshop manual there is no information on which wires go to each pin!?

I’m guessing

White - ignition?
Brown - ground?
White/red - starter solinoid?
White/pink - ignition lamination?

But even with the correct information I’m still lost on the PIN numbers.

Thanks in advance
