Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

Can you point me to the wiring diagram for the above mower

I am rebuilding a 13HP (B & S) 38" cut ride on MTD mower and having problems with the wiring. The previous owner has butchered the wiring considerably. I have it all running but the safety features are not functioning and the charge circuit appears to not be working. Can you point me to a wiring diagram or at least advise what interlocks should be working and how. There are two wires exiting from the flywheel, one red, the other black. The white goes back to the lights on switch, the black to the ignition switch. Is the red the charge function?

The flywheel black (negative) and red (positive) wires are the magneto output. Red goes to ignition to charge the battery, and also burn the headlights -- so the red will go to the headlight switch as well, maybe through the ignition.

There should be an in-line fuse on the charging/headlight wire coming from the magneto.

There should be a safety switch under the seat which energizes the fuel cutoff solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor.

There are also interlock switches on blade engage mechanism, and the brake pedal, These prevent engine from starting if brake is not applied or if blades are engaged -- these would control current to the ignition module.

This is not complete, but it'll give you some clues -- good luck -- it's a ton of work.

Replacing a MTD spindle assembly


Yes, most spindles come with non threaded holes. The metal is soft and you can just use regular bolts. Once you start them, they cut their own threads.
