Wiring a Nav light Switch

I am trying to wire up a new carling 3-way switch - on - off - on for my nav lights and lets just say I am struggling.

Pictures of the switch attached. Standard port, starboard and all round white to connect up, so 3 lives and 3 negatives.

I am assuming negatives to the fuse board, all lives to the switch and one live back to the fuse board.

From looking at the web, I think I am missing a jumper?

If anyone has a diagram that a novice can follow or simply knows which wires to connect to which number connector (I ve got 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 - nothing in 1, 7 and 8) then that would be a great help.

Thanks

Deleted post, just realised my answer related to a different switch. Do you have the part number for yours?

Try again😁
+ve supply onto 2&5
Port & stbd +ves onto 3
Jumper between 4&6 & connect all round white to either 4 or 6
Take all -ves back to battery or common earth.
I'm assuming you have fuses in the supply side.

It needs to be On-On-On if you want to use it as a two stage switch...... i.e.

OFF / Top Light / Top Light and Navlights.


Aquafax part no. 8-82071

Are you sure Chris? On-of-on does it for me. Centre position off, up for all round white, down for all round white & steaming lights👍

Maybe a ohm meter to check what's what on that switch. Usually in my experience the 6 pole DPDT Switch is used for reversing polarity by crossing and connecting each end to the other-switch end on the other side. And +/- In - to the center tabs. Then connecting to the motor by any two end tabs so in one direction it will turn-on the item, and the other way it will revere the polarity to reverse the electric motor. Not seen a five pin switch till now.
