I got this from our electrical partners EZACDC at their www.easyacdc.com
 
If you get an ignition switch that doesn't have any markings on the terminal, Kevin came up with this suggestion.
 
Disconnect all the boat wiring from the switch and use an ohm meter to test which terminal is which.
  • With the key off, use your ohm meter to locate the two terminals that are internally connected together. Connect your ground and mag wires to these two terminals.
  • With the key on, use your ohm meter to locate the two terminals that are internally connected together. Connect your battery wire to either terminal.
  • With the key in the start position, use your ohm meter to locate the terminal that is internally connected to your battery terminal. Connect your start wire here.
  • With the key in the choke position, use your ohm meter to locate the terminal that is internally connected to your choke terminal. Connect your choke wire here.

Otherwise if you have an ignition switch with markings then one of these diagrams/pics should work for you. But if you have any doubts, just ask someone at the link above if we can't help you. Just make sure you have the ignition switch for your application.

Thank you WCD.  I knew the electric guru would have an answer.
