The switch uses a plug in block so there is no "re-wiring" involved. There is a potential problem if you get the wrong switch. There are several switches with the same terminal patter so it is possible to get a switch which will mount to the new switch but can cause a dead short when you key the switch. Be sure the letters next to each terminal on the switch match on the new switch.

How do you check a ignition switch on a murray riding lawn mower to make sure it is operating properly?

You will need a multimeter... then you will need to check each wire port to see if voltage is registering . I would also disconnect the safety switch under the seat or.. plus put the emergency brake on as well... anything and all that will stop the engine from getting the signal to the coil to start up..

I have a 1983 Murray riding mower, I need to know the ignition wiring diagram. There's a yellow ignition switch and I don't know where it goes to. There's also a single wire that comes out from the front...

With the model number, you can obtain a users manual. I viewed their sample and it included the wiring diagram... SWEET!
Here is the link for your manual:

Hope this helps... Good luck!
