I use a toggle switch with a 70 amp relay to turn the ignition on and a pushbutton with a relay to crank the engine.

Since Im running an MSD ignition I have a toggle for the ignition, no relay as the MSD only needs a low amp signal to turn on/off.

and I have a momentary switch for the starter.

Crank the starter for a second or so, then hit the ignition and instant fire.

I use a Spaghetti Menders system and the box is mounted overhead. It's easy to get to when strapped in.
