Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have a Craftsmen 17,5hp briggs 42in deck model # 917.272673 riding mower after installing another engine, the fuse blows once you turn the key. battery is good engine is b/c i can put direct current to the starter and it wil turn over and fire also with starter fluid sprayed in the carb. replaced the key switch, battery, and cleaned the seat switch connections. oh also bypassed the seat switch. i would also loved to know where can i find a wiring diagram for this mower.
Sounds like you are on the right path, maybe some wires on the ignition were replaced backward, and you are sending +12v directly to ground? Does it blow right away?

As soon as you turn the key the fuse blows check the head light wires they get cought in the exhaust & that can cause it because you turn the key once the lights are on turn it again & starts engine try that
