    See the pen drawing? Compare to the schematic below. Is this what I should do for a 3 wire cord? Thanks.

    Yes the black wire to the switch, the white wire to the transformer.

    If your power cord isn't color coded correctly in the US the narrow plug blade is hot to the fuse and switch, the wide blade is neutral to the transformer and the center ground connector is bolted to the chassis. You can use a multimeter's continuity "beep" function to confirm the wires and blades.

    If your plug doesn't have wide and narrow blades then look how it plugs into the wall and the wall socket will have narrow and wide blade slots.
