Starter switch reassembly
Fergy, I didn't see where I could post pics in the PMs so here's evidence of the results of my undaunted exuberance for all to see. The starter switch sits in the lower portion of the RH control unit and appears to be comprised of : the little "Start" button; a small copper spring (which I have affixed to the starter button with red threadlock); a connecting plate, where it appears that the button in the middle is contacted by the button on the starter switch (spring in between them); and all of it is held in place by a elongated, u-shaped piece of metal that is screwed onto the rh controls.
Here's what I'm thinking - though I'm certainly open to any and all suggestions: don't be fooled by appearances, this is a ship in a bottle. There seems to be no way to get the button into the recess of the u-plate, then the plate into the control unit, all while trying to attach the plate to the spring. Soooooo, I think I'm gonna affix the spring qua starter button to the plate tonight, creating one unit out of that. Then, I can position the u-plate while maniupulating the button-spring-connecting plate contraption into place. Once everything is where it's supposed to be, I can cinch it all down with the screw. I can't really see why the screw should ever be floating around loosely in there, but perhaps there is logic that has escaped me?
