My '84 had a hot-start problem.  I installed the same switch you're
describing, allowing it to start almost every time.  Fast-forward a couple
of years when the ignition switch needed replacement because of the
headlights cutting out.  The big surprize is that the new ignition switch
completely fixed the hot-start problem. Haven't used the workaround switch
