So after getting frustrated and working on other more pressing projects:-) I cam back to find a simple answer to my issue:

And wouldn't you know, I found a tiny little schematic etched into the back of the trigger/switch. I could barely make it out so I drew a lager one on paper (see image below) and after a few swapping of the wires and making some connection adjustments, BINGO!!!! It works as advertised!! Thanks Day Tripper!!!
Other than my ego being damaged, the drill survived its re-purposing and will live a long and happy life running my mill.
I will post some finished pics when it's complete.
Thanks again Tripper!!
