I want to do two things to my truck:
1) Remove the clutch start cancel switch to make room for my own switch (all the other blanks are taken).
2) Bypass the clutch start switch that requires the clutch pedal to be pressed down before the engine will start. From what I've read, this can be done with a simple piece of wire to short the harness that plugs into the clutch pedal.
I don't like 'idiot-proof' designs. If I want to be an idiot and break my truck I will damn well do it, so I want the freedom of being able to start my truck with the clutch engaged without the need to press an idiot-proof button. On the other hand, I've also read that starting your engine without the clutch pedal depressed can cause damage to your starter - something about there being resistance in the clutch even when the truck is not in gear. Is there any validity to this?
Thanks for the help!
