    See attached. If you notice I cut and moved white/black wire off the junction for both switches and moved it from the start switch to the run/kill switch on the load side. The reason I did that is because the way they had it wired you could hit the start button any time and the starter would turn the motor over. However it wouldn't start the motor unless the run/kill was in run to supply power to the coil. Hope it make sense.
