  7. JV yes your wire diagram is correct or at least what I seen but dual mag appears to be second circuit for battery No sure how the current separates at the mag but Yes dual mags are twice the price as are the switches and reading the mag switch be fitted with trember coil not sure what that is unless it's referring to buzz coil
  8. This wire diagram for duplex or dual mag This allows start on battery and switch mag for hard to start engines
