Ok guys, I tried her out today, an pow, there goes the fuse. So I said to myself, forget it. I put a jumper wire in where the fuse should go. Tried it. And there was a flash and smoke and the jumper wire fried. Where do I go for here?

You have something not wired right. We need to walk through each wire. Starting from your battery

How is your kill switch wired? it should not go to a ground. It should be an ignition on and off and should power the coil and could run the shut off solenoid too. The engine is alternated and does not use a magneto kill system.

It's not really much. A wire going from the coil to tha toggle switch and them to ground. It's the same machine as your profile picture!

Mine is wired to power the coil, not ground it. The switch cuts the power to shut off the engine. The profile pic is the original 16 hp twin Briggs, now it has a 17 hp single Tecumseh.

Ive noticed that with the newer engines the coil takes power to make spark and the older ones when gounded that how the spark is lost.

Both of the engines used in mine, are wired the same. Both engines have alternators and are not magneto fired. I would scrap all the old wiring and start over using a diagram from a tractor that used that 2007 Briggs engine.

Ya, the whole thing was redone but the fellow I bought it from. It's kinda annoying cause over te summer I completely rewired three other tractors. This one is giving me preticular troubles.
