    They go to the switch, which is under the interlock, which is where the trigger torsion spring hooks. Remove the torsion spring, lift the interlock and it should be under it.
    Good luck.................and don't call me again!!!!!

    How do the wires terminate ? They dont reach that far so they must have gotten cut short.

    If its like the switch they put in the trimmers...the wires are soldered into the switch before the switch is assembled...
    It looks like it is time for a new swttcherrooskie....

    With an ignition system hotwired to always ON the choke mechanism becomes a handy on-off switch.
    Sorry, not much into schematics and wiring faggotry.
    Buttt if you ask me, the on/off switch is missing completely in those pictures.
