Stella 2T

The kill switch on my 2T seems to have developed a problem. When not pressed it read 500 ohms across its terminals. That is not good, it should be essentially open-circuit. The engine would half-start and then die.

I pried it apart and ground off the center terminal to take the contacts apart. The center insulating phenolic washer (smallest one) had been carbon-tracked and became conductive.

The repair is easy. I used a screw and nut and some new material to replace the center phenolic insulator.

The repaired switch has essentially infinite resistance (as it should be) until depressed.

One less problem... onto the next.

Great detective work! Most folks just disconnect the kill button via the wire under the horn cover, and call it a day. Nice job actually figuring out the problem and detailing a solution.
