That's exactly what we did to fix the switches like this that have caused intermittent ignition. It is ignition switches and guys that run only one of the miracle switch for receiver that have failed / crashed.

Next time I need to buy switches it will be the Jeti magnetic switches with the Fob....ulous magnet.
I too have had two airframes with these in them. A 150cc Extra (38%), and a 108" Yak 55 with a DA120.
I quite like these to.

There are answers here in the west. After regular working hours.
Patience, or ask you questions before we leave.
Hope this helps.

Doug I have done that to my remaining Miracle switches. Only adding a jumper across the third pair of contacts as well.

Not to correct anyone. But these are know in the industry as DPST switches, not double throw. Connected in parreallel.

Hope this helps.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Who said double throw? Or did I miss that somewhere?

I usually have some of the boys playing in the circle to amuse me while you guys are at work. I guess things must have been too busy in the circle today.
