ballast switches

I picked up a pair of switches from wakemakers and note there are 6 leads but ultimately only two go in and 2 should come out. Anyone know why 6 leads and - if so - how to wire? On a related note i have eliminated my hydrolic hatch ( 2000 205v ) and am thinking that wiring harness ( which ends in two leads ) can probably be used as well. Has this been tried?

Do you have the aerators or the reversables? They each have a different configuration. I know aerators were the standard back then just not sire of you upgraded

That diagram I posted is for reversible pumps. I assumed you had reversible when you said 2 going in and 2 going out.

Aerator pumps would just be one pump connected to A and D and the other connected to F and C with Vs and ground in the same place.
