Default 3 pole Ig Switch numbers

My 75 XLH has an original LE-34 switch, and am about to put on a switch from a 77 XLH, but has number LE-51.

If compatible, which letters would correspond with each other?

Are these the equivalents?

I cannot imagine anyone using G as a label for anything but ground.

1975 & 1977 Schematic shows these Keyswitch Connections

B - Battery ---- to Regulator/Battery
G - Ignition --- to Input of Ignition & Accessory Circuit Breaker
ST - Lights ---- to Input of Light Circuit Breaker

G & ST are jumpered together (at the switch) so that the Lights are ALWAYS ON when Ignition is ON

I run the lights separate to give more cranking amps when starting, then just turn the key one more click to have lights.

Good luck with the switch I have been replacing them non stop since I built the stroker.
