I have an holder homelite Enforcer that I am retrofitting.

My 1st question is, I purchased the push rod switch assembly. The leads on this assembly are new to me, they are 2 pin. My battery pack and reciever use 3 pin connectors. How do I go about getting connectors or adapters that will allow the push rod switch to work with my equipment?

#2. Is the enforcer EKG compatible with homelite engines? Are there any instructions available online that I can look at for that?

Thanks for the help!

Hi Blair Welcome to Club Enforcer. All radio systems use 3 wires on the servo leads, some use 2 wires on the switch / battery leads . Not knowing your system I don't know the color of the wires. Either white, red & black or yellow, red & black. The red is + positive, black - negative, the switch goes between the receiver battery connection and the receiver battery ( 4.6 VDC to 6 VDC). Don't worry about the third wire. For your other question about the homelite engine. The EKG works like a kill switch shouting out the coil to ground but it does it through electronics. If your homelite has a wire Cumming off the coil that is not connected to anything that is most likely the kill switch wire. I don't have an EKG yet its in the mail.

If anyone can add to the pls do.

Gordon, thank you very much for your help! If I understand correctly, I need to just clip off the end of my battery and manually connect it to the power rod switch? (as those connectors wont fit). The power rod switch (female end) will connect to the receiver as is, just to the negative and positive.

As for the EKG, does that look like the correct wire? Based on the below pic do you think the EKG is compatible?

Blair, regarding connecting the battery to the power rod switch double check everthing replacing a receiver can sometimes be very costly, remember to solder and heat shrink if you connect bare wires. That method makes it impossible to take battery pack out in most cases.

With regard to EKG I do not know homelite engines. I would connect a wire to the black wire in the picture, start your engine then Touch the wire to the engine, if the engine quits that is the kill switch wire. But better yet phone Tony at 18636991231 . He knows both the EKG & the homelite engine.
All the best.

Gordon, thanks again buddy! I will take your advise carefully and take some good pics after complete! I guess it makes the most sense for me to put the switch on the lid of the battery box? That way I could remove the battery and switch along with the radio box lid to remove if needed for charging etc. (I understand that I will need to disconnect the switch from the receiver to do so.) I will call Tony before I decide to pull the trigger on the EKG. But thank you again very much for your help!

Blair, That would work for the switch, if you use rechargeable batteries I would suggest not charge them in the radio box. My EKG and other goodies should be here this week :o) so I might be able to give more help then.

Blair, I received my parts today, EKG, Radio Safe Guard. I also have an onboard kill switch that I'm going to install I will post pictures and blog it.

Gordon, thanks so much! I saw your pic of the instruction sheet and that helps me out a lot after seeing that! Would love to see the pics when you get done! :)

Thanks again for all of your help, you are an asset to the Enforcer owner's club and I really appreciate all of your input and help!

Blair I took pictures of the battery / switch connections. You will notice the switch connector is too big for the EKG so I just very carefully cut off the extra part of the connector. Then plugged the two connectors together. I also scanned the instructions because they were labeled wrong.

 I will have to get a push rod seal for the EKG to kill switch wiring to exit the radion box. This should be good placement of the EKG as long as there is no radio interfence. if there is you will see a use for tin foil. hahaha
