Parts List

  • Vacuum Operated Electrical Switch (VOES), with included mounting bracket hardware. See previous section for part numbers.
  • Vacuum tubing, 5/32” diameter. Quantity: 1-foot, if you will be mounting the VOES near the carb, as I did. Tip: A piece of vacuum hose from the AIS can be used, if you have removed your AIS.
  • Two tiny hose clamps, optional. They are for the vacuum hose. Tip: I used ones left over from removing my AIS.
  • Flat washer for a bolt with a 6mm shaft, if you will be mounting the VOES in the same location as I did.
  • Dielectric (silicone) grease, to inhibit corrosion of the electrical connections.
  • Electrical tape or electrical shrink-tubing.
  • High Temp gasket maker, such as Permatex RTV silicone #26B, red. This is for securely mounting the VOES to the bracket supplied.

 

Tools

  • Wire stripping tool of some kind
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle nose pliers, if using 'squeeze-on' type hose clamps
  • Screwdriver, if using screw-on type hose clamps
  • 10mm metric wrench (socket, open-end, box, or whatever)
  • 5mm hex wrench for removing the gas tank
  • Large screwdriver or pliers for pushing on the VOES bracket retainer, optional, if you will be using the supplied bracket for your installation
  • Large phillips (X) screwdrivers for disconnecting the battery
  • Wire crimper or crimping pliers, if using crimped-on wire connectors
  • Soldering pencil and solder, if using soldered connections
