    Default 4 way or 3 way connector?

    Hey all,

    Switching out my universal keyed ignition switch back over to stock. Does anyone know if a 67' M715 came stock with the 4 or 3 connector type? I thought 4 as I think that 3 represents 'on/off/start'?

    I ordered the 4 connector thinking that this would allow me 3 separate leads out for accessories though it appears that the '4 connector' is possibly a dual connector? As it looks to requires two separate power leads in and a single connector for each lead out...unless I obtained a faulty switch.

    I think this is what it looks like:

    Mine is converted to 12v and does not have one so I can't confirm this. Someone else will follow up.

    I can't see e-bay at work.

    The "ON/OFF" switch for the M715 had two positions for the switch and 4 leads on the back. 2 were power in and 2 were power out. Basically, power went from one lead to the alternator and the other lead to the gauges. Starting is done by a floor mounted foot operated switch which is seperate from the on off switch.

    Correct both of you!


    There is no Start position on the power switch in an M715...it is split out on a foot switch, as Barrman stated.

    Thanks Gary for posting the picture.

    I worded my answer wrong too. One wire does the alternator and gauges while the other goes to the coil is what I meant to write. Sorry for any confusion.
