Some more information on the year of your car would be helpful. I believe there are two different ignition switches common to the Morris Minors. The early cars, which utilized a pull start knob only have two terminals on the ingnition swtich. It doesn't matter which wire goes where as the circuit is a simple on/off, making or breaking the connection between the two wires. The later cars, however, added a start position to the ignition switch and If its the version of the lucas Ignition switch I think it is, there are six connectors, but effectively only three terminals as two of the terminals have two connectors each. On those switches, terminal number 3 (One of the double spade terminals) is your constant power feed from the battery/voltage regulator, the predominantly brown wire(s) . Terminal 2 is your "ignition on" feed (Solid white wires) and terminal 1 is your starter feed (White/Red).
