As far as I can tell, I have a 1950 8N, with side distributor, that has already been converted to 12V. It was running fine, when the battery shifted in its tray and started arching against the frame, at which point it fried some wires and probably other stuff. In my attempt to put things right, I removed the cobbled mess of wires with the 400 different colored wires that were spliced together, and bought a new ignition switch and wiring harness. I'm using the attached diagram to guide me and I took a picture of my block and new switch. Any thoughts? The starter is good on the bench and even tried jumping it in the tractor and it turns it over fine. From what I can tell, I have it wired correctly according to the diagram. What am I doing wrong!? Any help is very much appreciated
