I need the electrical circuit manual for a Snapper riding mower. I'm converting a B&S 8hp to a Tecumseh 13hp engine. Tecumseh doesn't have a recoil starter. I would like to buy a manual with the solenoid and recharge ckts.

If one goes to the starter, the other has to come from a 12 volt source, either ignition switch or battery

SOURCE: Snapper Hi-Vac riding mower that won't start with starter

You may need a 300cca battery, an ignition switch or a solenoid to get things going again. I also would check to make sure the starter gear has not locked in the flywheel teeth; it will burn up the starter. You should be able to go to the snapper website and put your model of mower in and find the parts and diagrams you need.
Good Day.

SOURCE: i need an owners manual for a murray riding mower.

First off, confirm that the tractor is in Neutral and the deck is not engaged. You also need to be on the seat, and in some cases your foot must be on the brake. Then try it.

If by "jump" you mean essentially connect one end of a jumper cable to the battery power coming to the solenoid, and the other end of the SAME jumper cable to the 6 gauge (+/-) wire on the other side of the solenoid that goes to the starter, and it cranks, this means one of two things.

More than likely it is the solenoid that is bad, but the only way to confirm this is to make certain that when you turn the key, it sends power to the small (18 gauge) wire on the solenoid. This is easy to check with a test light.
If power is goes to the solenoid when the key is turned, but the engine fails to crank then the solenoid is bad.

If no power is there, then the problem has something to do with either the ignition switch or ignition wiring, or more likely it is a failure of one of the safety switches, under the seat, transmission in gear, sometimes if the deck is engaged, or other.

One way to confirm that the problem is with a safety switch or ignition switch and rule out the solenoid would be to jump a wire directly from the positive terminal to the small wire on the solenoid that comes from the ignition. If this causes the engine to crank, then the solenoid is OK.

I have a tecumseh 8hp on a snapper handlebar rider. bought it used 2 weeks ago, got it home mowed for about 1 hour and it quit. decide to give it a tune up. noticed the coil wire was almost burnt in half....


If plug is dry than you are not getting fuel to the plug something is plugged up in the carb clean it thoroughly and make your coil gap is correct. But I would lean more towards the fuel not reaching the plug.

Snapper mower electric start problem


On most mowers, that red wire will connect to the battery. that could be your problem.
you didn't say if it is a rider or not, or how old it is.
Touch the wire to positive post on the battery, with the key off, remove quickly if it sparks.
if no spark, hold it to the battery while turning the key.
if the engine tries to start, connect it permanently.
