How to replace clutch start switch?

(1990 Ford F-150)
in St. Paul, MN on February 24, 2011
I am considering replacing the clutch start switch on my truck. This morning when I shut it off it would not start up again. It's a manual so I had it pulled and it popped off immediatedly. New battery installed a month ago and a new starter 6 months ago. The starter solenoid was just rebuild last fall. Any suggestions will help?

Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website
and get an online repair manual subscription. There are two companies that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores and much cheaper than the factory manual try Alldata which is very easy to navigate or Mitchell on line and get an online repair manual subscription.

I re-wired a toggle switch to the ignition, by-passing the switch at clutch pedal, which in essence give a "secret" security switch... key or no key with out switch ON no start. check wiring diagram of ignition switch for color or trace from clutch pedal.
