Just to close the loop on this... apparently the sole failure after we re-connected the ground wire was operator error. It was warm, I used too much choke. The fact that it started up when I hit the B switch was apparently coincidence. My partner flew it yesterday and had no problem starting on the A ignition, and I started it this morning, A side only, about 1/3 - 1/2 choke. All is well.

Default Soft start module

I just removed the module from the RANS S7S, engine ran rough and sometimes wouldn't start and also would fail on mag check sometimes,
Once removed and having two Ing switches engine runs smooth now with no problems. I just start on one ignition.
If I'm correct that's why the soft start module was discontinued because of the problems it caused.
To bad, when working it was a great unit.
