Keep up the good questions. Info like this helps us all.

Its even better when the forgetful staffer remembers to add it too the FAQ's.

Wheee! High idle!

Thanks Diaric for directing me here - eventually. An email would probably have been a better bet, it seems that the forum doesn't want to email me when I get PMs anymore. I'll have to go into my settings and fix that.

Anyways, it looks like the original question has been answered satisfactorily. I honestly don't remember what diode I have, except that it was rated for over 270 volts and far more amps than I could imagine needing. I figure, go big or go home, eh?

I suppose I'll poke around the forum now and see who needs questions answered still. I was good at that, once upon a time...

Finally got my switches installed and wired up. The glow plug switch works. Im making up new battery cables so i haven't started the engine yet to test the High/cold idle. Maybe another day or two.

I tested the switches for the cold& high idle. I only used a test light to make sure that i was getting votlage to each part. when the cold switch is pressed, I have power going to the cold advance and the high idle solenoid. When I press the switch into high idle, I have voltage to High idle itself and no voltage to the cold advance, so it appears that the diode is working correctly.
