I have a 37 2 dr sedan that's converted to 12v and has a '61 261 w/ solenoid start. On the dash next to the choke is a pushbutton with a single wire terminal on the back presumably a horn button???. Temporarily I have a tractor start button wired in that has 2 terminals on the back but am wondering if there is any way to wire the original single post button in the start circuit so as to retain the original look? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Hello 37ryan,

Do you have any pics of this set-up ?? I'm only aware of the starterator which is in my MD. Are the models different from each other in this respect ??
old cars are meant to be driven !!
