Default H.F 11hp key start needs moved

Can anyone tell me how hard it would be to move the electric start key panel to the drivers control panel.

"Hard" is a relative term.

take bolts out, cut wires, solder longer pieces of wire in, shrink wrap, bolt in desired location.

You're a quick one! I wanted to see if it would sway the OP at all. "25% isn't bad but 1/4...that's too tough!"

I believe if you edit your first post you can erase the thread.

i have tried, lol. you can change the title by clicking the "edit" button on your FIRST post of this thread, then "go advanced", then just simply place your cursor in the "title" box and type in what you want.

Its 3 wires. 1 Positive to the switch from the positive in on the hot side of the starter solenoid. 2 is Positive trigger to the solenoid when key is turned to start. 3rd wire is from the ignition coil. Not a hard job at all.

i recall it being 5 wires, maybe i'm too tired. lol. you could prob set it up with 3 though.
i think this is pretty standard, wiring (please note you only need to extend the 4 wires on the key switch(big circle thing), then ground to the frame),
