Biff was thinking Bugeye ignition/light switch.
The 66 ignition switch should 3 wires, brown, white, and white with a red stripe.
Brown is from the battery
White goes to the ignition (coil)
white/red goes to the solenoid.
Hook up the brown and white/red, try the key on crank, if it works, great, if not, try 2 other terminals. Once you get thet, hook up the white to whatever is left.

Thanks Gents for the input!

Taking what you guys said and looking at the ignition switch, here is what i did...

I assumed that the single terminal at 6 o'clock was for the battery.
Taking in to account that the rotation of the key while looking at the back of the switch is counter clockwise, I assumed the next position would be accessory.
The third position would be to the starter, crank position.
The starter sounded like it was cranking just before the battery died :cry:

I'll give it a few hours on the charger, meanwhile have another beer... :lol:

I GOT IT!

I stumbled accross the original ignition switch that the po kept.

Lucas switch is marked 1, 2, & 3, which corrospond with the schematic.

Seems the single post at 6 oclock was not for the brown wire(battery) it was for the white w/red(solenoid).

Boiled Down: (Moving Counterclockwise looking at the back of switch)

Position 1-(per the markings on Lucas switch) or 6 oclock, single post
gets the White w/Red to solenoid.

Position 2-or 3 oclock get White wire(s) this is for the fuel pump and
accessories, I believe.

Position 3-or 11 oclock gets the Brown w/Blue to the battery

Not bad for a monday night eh guys?!
