    I had purchased a new locking ignition to replace the original that was damaged when someone tried to steal the car. The replacement did not fit well and since the car was in storage I didn't care much. Once I took the car apart I came to the same conclusion you did. I will scan the pic of the drawing and post it tonight.

      I used these 2 diagrams for the switch connections. Instead of a brown wire from the switch which is on the AAW schematic I used a yellow/brown of the same gauge to yellow at the connector. The other 3 wires on the switch are White/red to white red for starting, White to red green for run current and the radio wire. All as indicted on the AAW drawing.

        Thanks Anthony! I don’t completely follow this exactly, but I am out of town and don’t have my instructions from AAW in front of me. I am sure it will make complete sense when I can see the instructions.
        i enjoyed reading Ed Hollingsworth’s Bullfire documentary of his experience and purchased a universal switch that seems to be well made. I hope the connections are the same as on the TR250.

          I have just installed my power block and have been identifying my wires with the instructions. I, too, am missing the same wires from the relays to the hazard and turn signal.
          i did get a response from Steve today on my previous question, so I know he is trying. Did any of you figure out what is needed to wire these into the relay box or are we all doing something wrong?
          thanks,

            I talked with Steve at AAW today and got nothing but great news. He said that the two missing wires are no longer needed because over a year ago he switched the flashers for the hazard and turn signal indicators to a newer version that would accommodate LED lighting. The old flashers that required the two missing wires would not.
            He includes a new wiring diagram marked “A” as a single addendum to his instructions that explain the new wiring requirement. If you don’t see it in the instructions, email me at: jim18143@yahoo.com and I will send you a picture of it.
            The AAW wiring harness is an absolute first class product and I am glad to see it is still very much in business. I think that email responses may be the slower way of communicating with him, but phone calls will be returned. I did suggest that it might be beneficial to explain the positive change with the flashers on that addendum page and those of us struggling through a learning process might benefit.
            i hope this helps everyone.

              I just spent 4 hours wiring up the hazard switch, wiper switch and windshield washer motor. I must have spent 3 weeks pouring over the diagrams before daring to cut a wire! I'm glad I decided to install the air vent tubing to the eyeballs before the wiring. Space is tight and the tubes take up a lot of space.

                What did you use for a hazard switch? I used the supplied spdt toggle but could not figure out how to mount in the stock location.

                  I am using the AAW supplied switch. I put a flat washer behind the metal dash and another under the nut that secures the switch. The dash fits fine over the switch. I am looking for a more cosmetic switch but it is not a priority. I just want to get it done.
