Hi, new from Iowa and need help with a 65 Senior wiring problem. Picked up the same Senior my father bought 50 years ago and sold while I was in the service in 68. Engine runs, but the kill portion of the switch doesn't work. Also I have no tail, brake, or headlights. Previous owner took the bike apart for restoration just to show so I don't think wires were put back as original. New wires spliced in and only one wire to tail light. Haven't found any diagrams on line for this machine. Anybody have a wiring diagram, or could walk me through the wiring? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the description of the lighting system from the manual for the Compact.  The Senior manual is word-for-word.

Thanks Ridebuse, can't believe I've been off the internet for four months. Bitch getting older. Kind of figured how that worked, think I have bad lighting coil. When I turn headlight on, taillight goes out. Planning on using a 12 volt led head and taillight with a solid state voltage regulator to cut down on voltage spikes at idle. Than figure a kick start, always wore gloves when starting as the kickback would rip the pull start handle right out of your hand.
