It might be the detent ball, too rusty? I found a new detent ball for my old '87 switch in an old Snap-on ratchet repair kit... got real lucky there.

I’ll look for a cut up switch–i can use the kill module out if it
How does the switch come apart? I took mine off a few weeks ago and took everything apart except the off-run-off switch. I couldn't figure out how to get it apart without breaking it. Ended up just spraying it good and it's been work fine so far.

The red button releases from the switch by using a tiny screwdriver. On the underside of the button is a slot... gotta be careful and patient getting it to release. Once the button is out of your way the switch comes apart easily. Watch for that tiny ball bearing to come springing out though.

Awesome! Had considered by passing it next time it acted up but will take it apart and try to clean it instead.

Haha! The part of the button that protrudes out the front broke off years ago. You can still press the switch though. I thought about replacing it (or the entire assembly) but just one of those things I haven't done yet.

Ok there are three pieces to this switch

The cover protects the two inner halves of the switch–it slips right off

The inner half has two contacts and a slot for the detent ball. The outer half has the spring, detent ball and a rolling block with two contacts. Separate the two using a thin flat screwdriver and unlock the two clips on the top and bottom of the inner halves.

found that I installed the slot half of the switch assembly upside down. Flipped it right and clicked it together. Checks good–continuity on B/W and G in both off positions

I installed a rebuilt OEM carb, the repaired starter switch, and a new foot brake. The old foot brake was super rusty.

I don’t have the fuel tank ready for install so I poured some fuel into the carb bowl and sprayed starter fluid into the throat. Hard neutral light–Kicked it several times but no fire. I didn’t hear the fuel pump running so i need to check out the fuel pump and relay circuit

fuel pump does not have to run in order to fire the engine over, spec with starting fluid. the engine should have '' fired over '' with what little you did. if the fuel pump is not working ?, it will just shut down once its running.
