    I'm having same problem. Replaced battery, and solenoid. Still not starting. I think the problem maybe with engaging the blade. I think that switch cord is messed up. Haven't solved problem yet, but still checking into it.

How do I wire a 18hp Briggs & Stratton engine to a craftsman GT5000 lawn mower


I dont have all your anwers. In my experience, Kohler frequently has wires to start, run and stop the engine. They also frequently have a low oil and/or high heat control (engine shut down). Also expect a wire from the charging system. On your tractor, you probably have similar plus 'operator presence' wires. These wires require to you to be sitting in the seat for the machine to operate - a seat switch for example. On my tractor, I can depress the 'brake' (which isnt exactly a brake in fact) and the engine will run when I dismount. However, if the mower is engaged, no matter what, if I get off the tractor, the engine shuts down.

You will have to determine what every wire is for and connect it properly. You may lose some engine 'functionality' or tractor safety features. It is never easy to put a Ford starter on a Chevy. Good luck with your project.

Engine will not turn over


A FUEL PROBLEM. It doesn't over or doesn't keep running when gas is gone. Doesn't turn over, remove spark plug to let fuel out.

Battery discharges while running


My 24HP 42" did the same. If your model is like mine, there are two black wires with a yellow connector coming down the side of the engine. Unplug those wires, and with engine running, and a multimeter leads attached to them measure for 15 volts AC. If good reconnect yellow wires, and test the single red wire with multimeter red test lead connected and black test lead to any engine ground point. Measure for 15 volts DC. My problem was that square regulator that did not convert 15 VAC to 15 VDC. If your tractor is less than two years old, the warranty will cover labor and repair. Also if your tractor's wiring has different color wires, the test procedure may be different.

Craftsman GT5000: Dies when switch is pulled to engage blades


Hi
Check for burnt fuse behind dash. If no burnt fuses check if getting power to magnetic clutch mounted on bottom of engine crankshaft. Make sure wires are not broken by magnetic clutch. Make sure the safety seat switch is working. Make sure you are sitting on the seat when you try to engage the blades. If that does not work try pushing and wiggling the seat sensor. Check make sure wire is attached to safety switch under seat.

Replacing engine. Briggs 26hp on GT5000 garden tractor


Unfortunately, there is no single manual for this. It depends entirely on what crankshaft the OEM requested be used in the engine. You need to find out the diameter of the crankshaft and any threading to it, direction of the threading, etc. From there, a replacement can usually be found pretty easily. That or contact Briggs customer support (number in your owners manual) with the Model, Type and Code numbers off the engine. From this information they can see how the engine was outfitted for that OEM. Horsepower tells them nothing as those ratings and stickers are often replaced by the OEM and often NOT the information Briggs sends out on the engine.
