    :?: :?: Did I imagine it or is there an alternative way posted to wire the kill switch than what the usual instructions say on a Happy Times.

    It's true there is a better way. The kit wants you to wire the kill switch so pressing the kill button grounds the magneto.

    Go to Auto Zone or radio shack and buy a toggle switch. 6v or 12v will work fine. Wire the black wire to black wire and blue to the switch. (blue wire from engine to one leg of the switch, blue wire from CDI to the other leg of switch)
