high idle mod

HI guys, first post here,
So I put printed out the wiring instructions, along with the part about diagnostics with the odometer, got under the dash, found the blue with yellow, found the white with blue, put a momentary switch in between, and the idle goes up to 1200...as long as I hold the switch down. If I let go, idle goes back down. If I hold it on, the idle stays up, and if I hold it up and press the brake, it goes down....I was correct in putting a momentary switch in right?

Also, tried the "gauge" circuit...pushed the button, got a "test"word, all 8"s across the odometer and that i where it stays to this moment....not a very productive Sunday.... HELP!!

Nope, momentary is not the right switch.
