I bought the combo plate to my swe1/rfm machine. I can't figure out how to get the shooter button switch mounted on the back. I am wondering if I am missing a part. A photo of an installed combo plate would be a big help.

You can go several different ways. You're not missing anything. The new button is a mini-micro, the old, a micro. The connector lugs are smaller on the new switch than the old. Simply take a pair of needle nose pliers and crimp one side of the plug that goes on the connector a little closer together. This will allow the current plugs to fit on the smaller switch connector without coming loose. Some plugs will fit OK without crimping, just use one side of the plug.

Alternately, put a new connector on the wires to fit the mini-micro lugs.

And finally, you can solder the wires directly to the lugs.
