    I don't quite understand the suggestion about tying them together and testing them
    seperately.All readings should be within .2 ohm if one is higher it would show a bad connection
    like say that splice ...

    So with this info turn off the breakers at both ends then at one end using jumper cords tie all
    3 wires together then with an ohm meter read from the far end. Should get very close to the

    If the switch in the picture is still the same orientation as used and high speed was up then
    the 2 black wires would be for high speed. The middle terminal is the feed bottom terminal
    would be high, ...

    Here's pix of the old switch. If I can't find a decent switch at a decent price, I will skip

    box.Your prese...
