Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have checked for shorts and can not find any. I put a new 30 amp fuse in and after several rotations on the engine the fuse blows. Could the armature be causing this?
I always start by unplugging lights, kill wire to coil electric clutch if it has one ,sometime its the fuel shut off solenoid on the bottom of carb if it has one.
You can keep trying until you find the thing that does not blow a fuse or use an ohm meter to read from pos cable to ground of tractor unhook ground wire to battery you will read short to ground thru coil kill wire,starter solenoid small wire on spade,fuel shut off
solenoid ,electric clutch ,rectifier (charging system )and large wire to starter thats why I unplug them .
I have seen more shorts from lights , fuel shut off solenoid , charging system. not ing coil not safety switches not even bad starters.
