Yesterday, I was working on rewiring my tractor to have an ignition switch and a push button start switch. After working on it forever, I got exasperated and quit as I couldn't figure out what wire did what. How did y'all do your tractors?

Does your motor have an internal or external regulator?

Quote :
A voltage regulator is designed to automatically maintain a constant voltage level. A voltage regulator may be a simple "feed-forward" design or may include negative feedback control loops. It may use an electromechanical mechanism, or electronic components. Depending on the design, it may be used to regulate one or more AC or DC voltages.

Probably looks a bit like this.

I have the Briggs basic wiring diagram on my facebook

Link to Photo

Or just go to my facebook and look through my photos. https://www.facebook.com/JunkStarBuilds

I think FearlessFront has a video on wiring as well. But to help you out directly, I would need to know the engine model, year and make of the mower..


Take care, Keep riding

PostSubject: all right cool,   How do you know what wire is what when rewiring a tractor? Icon_minitimeOctober 12th 2012, 11:22 am

Basically, I know of two places off the top of my head that I start off looking for diagrams..

Sears Parts Direct


And

E Replacement Parts


Also, you can get lucky if you plug in your part description and google Image search then play with the side sorting (I.E line drawing or Black and White)

Please If you find it before me, Id like get more diagrams for my facebook. so, let me know.
