My grandnephew is the only
family member that is into this
stuff. I made this battery box
for my Super Eltos and added
the kill switch when he asked
to run one of my Speedsters.
Very nice instillation , would you be willing to do a schematic including the engine as that is a complicated unit to hook up I left it out of my schematic because I have a stepper I run all my 20’s engines on and my stop switch arrangement although it works for my Eltos single coil Lockwoods and Johnsons and dual coils Johnsons Its so complicated I have forgotten how it works and a single engine schematic would be good for the Elto’s
This battery box has a back up battery
and the toggle switch is to change from
one to the other. In a normal single battery
arrangement you just cut one wire coming
from the coil going to the battery and then
connect the (now two) wires to the kill switch.
I’m not sure if many deal with hospital grade cord caps like a monitor in surgery. Very simple safety on the end. The third wire & being the ground pin is just an 1/4" longer than the other two. You see the ground wire is the last one to disconnect from the wall socket. This way the machine is protected until even the end on the cord is removed completly. Many never know or see the difference but they are protected. Many items on a outboard can be applyed to safety too.
The off switch also disconnects both the line (power not grounded) & the grounded wire both become disconnected from the wall except the grounding wire. Both being grounded & grounding terminals have different jobs. One protects & two returns to earth the load being drawn by the ungrounded load return. More safety!
