Can you elaborate on the function of the ignition switch in the circuit and what might cause intermittent failure like this.

Is there any way to test the ignition switch without just replacing it?

I am struggling with my own starting issues and have gone thru most of the other checks on the green wire and replaced relays, etc. but have not looked at the ignition switch or any wiring under the dashboard.

My fuel system is completely rebuilt and the WUR too so I think something is cutting the spark momentarily when trying to start the car and once it runs for a minute or 2 it stalls and wont restart.
