Ford 601 Workmaster wiring

I recently bought a Ford 601 that needed a little work, but supposedly ran well. After cleaning the most rusted fuel tank I've seen and god knows how much aggravation with grounded armatures in a couple starters, I hit another wall. Whoever decided to do away with the original ignition switch for a push button and toggle switch also decided to re-paint the tractor red. Wires, hoses, and all. The tractor was converted to 12V and has a two-wire alternator (not sure if that matters, but I saw some guys bickering over it in another forum). If anyone could give me some idea of how to hook up a two terminal toggle switch or where to find a decent wiring diagram, I would appreciate it. This wouldn't be that big of an issue, if not for the fact that every wire and terminal is red.

Thanks,
Mike
