the prefix is 9N for both 9Ns and 2Ns.

your serial number is a 1944 2N.

u should not have your headlights/work light wired thru your ignition switch. that could very well be the problem. those switches are only intended to handle the current used by the ignition. lights use much more current and that can fry the switch.

try jumpering around the switch and see if the problem goes away.

Jumping the switch made no difference.

Is this the way it SHOULD be wired?

that's a step in the right direction. in a perfect world, that wire nut is actually the common post on the OEM ballast resistor - but that difference is probably not the cause of your problem atm.

The "common post of the resistor" refers to which side of the resistor?

that post has the 4 wires in your diagram at the wire nut. the yellow wire from the switch goes to upper left, red wire to upper right.
