    Does anyone know of a supplier who may have the correct Hunter Orange connector for our Buick clutch start switch jumper wire assembly? I'm making a few spares and all I have been able to find are black ones (Packard 56 connector #2973407)

    American Autowire sells a jumper harness with that color connector. Not sure if they sell it separately

    Thank you Jason! It's even cheap at $12/each.

    Yes, they are. But for whatever reason, the Olds start switch is not. Its very short for some odd reason. Ask me how I know:D The Buicks and Ponchos take a long harness that wraps over the pedal hanger and into the switch. I cant see hoe the Olds one would work unless the 442's take a different switch?

    And the current repro Poncho switch has the wrong color connector. Should be orange but its black

    The Olds uses the same switch for 70-72. They use a purple wire with black ends. It might just be how the dash harnesses are routed,and where they put the pigtail for the jumper wire. I can take pictures of the Olds next time I am up under there.
