    I’m using an armature plate from a motor that had a kill switch on an earlier motor that doesn’t, specifically a 56-’57 10 HP. I thought I read somewhere that those two wires shouldn’t just be left open like this. Is that true? I’ve done this in the past a time or two and always taped the ends or used heat shrink, and never had any noticeable problems. But could any damage be done to any of the ignition components without having them connected to a switch?

    The only time that the circuit is completed is when you push the kill switch.
