    I picked up a champion 600 with extremely busted power switch. Someone suggested that I could cut off the clips and put on a standard Carling switch. But I donít know where the four wires go and if the green wire needs connected to one of the three poles can someone please tell me what to do via the picture I posted? Time is of the essence!

    It’s a carling 3 pole switch I just need to know where I attach the white and black wires. Which pole is which and is one of the poles a ground I should jump the green wire to or just black/black on pole 1 and white/white on pole 2... dig?

      That switch won't work. You need DPST type.
      Experience is something you get, just after you really needed it.

              When I do get it, which Poles does the power cable go to which poles do the interior wires go to?

                The green of the AC cord does not go to the switch. It is supposed to connect directly to the chassis with it's own bolt.
                The white and black from the AC cord should go to the 2 end lugs of the switch. The other white and black should go to the center lugs.
                The 2 whites should be on the same side of the switch, same as the 2 blacks. (not criss-crossed)

                  Here you can see where the green wire should be screwed to the chassis.
