The ignition switch, wiring and other stuff were cobled together. I replaced some wiring. Removed the push button(which cranked the starter) and key which fire up the glow plugs.

Delemma... the new switch does not have as many connection as the last and does not stay on. The new switch has glow plugs when I turn it right, starter and glow plugs when I turn it left.

The delco alternator has 3 wires. How do I hook it up? Also there is an ampmeter. Do I need another switch to rub the alternator ?

Here's a picture that shows how to wire up an internal regulated GM alternator:

Thanks Tony. I have a standard diesel, so I have watched with great interest at your posts. Most interesting. I rebuilt mine and it runs great. I realize that the gas and diesel will operate differently. My interest is how to set up the electrical / ignition switch to work with a 3 wire alternator. Can this be done or do I need a second switch to make the alternator work. I'm totally in the dark on this so any suggestions are appreciated. Most of the existing wiring diagrams show a generator so that not much help for a electrically challenged individual like myself.

Since it's a diesel, don't expect the switch to be like a gas model. Your new switch does what it is suppose to, glow plug preheat position in one direction, and crank the starter, in either direction? That's what mine does.
I believe your lights will work off a separate switch just for them, off the battery / generator circut. My MF35 has this on the left. No 'key' to secure for kids or the night etc. And my Lucas generator has only two wires. Some one here will be able to show a wiring diagram for you, or see if there is one on the FENA website, should be one there for diesels.
