Just want to clarify, is the diagram listed in Bart site correct?

    dear all, I just completed my electronics upgrade and replan for my oh sixer. i am using the Bart soap bar which allows me to do the series-single-parallel switching option, at first i follow the diagram provide in http://www.bartolini.net/1_wirngs/4cnd_sw1.htm
    however, based on other info from TB forum and my little knowledge on electronics i am question the wiring method provide by Bart. and i do my own version (tb version) and it works fine, so i would like to invite you all to give the bart diagram a look,... and see is there any problem there... ( look for the series-single-parallel, on-on-on switch diagram please)

    FWIW:

    I used these Bart wiring diagrams and have had no problem. Easy to verify in knowing how the terminals switch and knowing what it takes to hard wire the pup as such then comparing the two.

    I think some switches may work differently though. I'm not into switching so it's something I only do out of necessity.

    see if there will be problem in parallel mode? each coil ground themselves

    i think the black and the green may have to swapped

    actually, I've got a hard copy of that sheet that came with pups and in comparing the two, mine has the green and black in that diagram switched.

    yeh, actually right off the bat a green and white is not going to make for a single coil but a black and white will.

    They was a great job of extracting that diagram and doing the highlighting. What could be clearer than the actual diagram outlined functionally in color code.

    Lyle Caldwell would be impressed I think.
