Question about Tecumseh Enduro Vertical Engine 16 HP 1in x 3 532in Shaft Model OHV16204230F

1 Answer

I need to know how to wire a new ignition switch for a Murray ride on lawnmower that has a Tecumseh Enduro 15.5 engine. Thanks, northbendnick There are 5 wires from the engine: white, yellow, red, black and a black/red combo. I cannot get the model number since the label is worn away. We have purchased a 5 position ignition switch whose terminals are labeled: B, S, G, M and L. Will this switch work for this engine? IF so what wires connect to which terminals? If not, what kind of switch to we need and then what wires will connect with which terminals? We have been frustrated in trying to get this baby to run so any information you can provide will be very much appreciated. Thanks, Northbendnick
