You should have an AMP meter on the LGT. Don't listen to me talking in the video (I get Parallel and Series mixed up). Amp meter is in series with the battery, volt meter in parallel. Hopes this helps. https://www.youtube....h?v=Sgb7yh2L8tM

I have a question about my Craftsman 27HP 54 deck model 917.288740. Under the hood the PTO switch has 8 contacts (3-3-2) but the wiring plug only has 7 (3-2-2). Is a wire missing? There is a wire free but it is very short and barely makes it to the PTO switch. How can I determine where the wire goes? I am having trouble with my electric PTO clutch and have just ordered a new one today. But it's the wire floating around free that I am concerned about. Can I get any directions please.

Does anyone know of owner of a Craftsman 27hp 54 inch deck model 917.288740 that I can get information from. Because I have some questions about wires under the hood.

Did you try posting in the Sears forum?

Q, is it necessary or an advantage to have a solenoid for the starter system on the Briggs & Stratton 8 to 12 PH engines ??

A digital meter will mess with you. I was a Can-maker electrician and troubleshoot a lot of circuits ,A digital screwed me up a few times after that I used a swing meter Simpson meter . My apprentice called it the old man meter but it was true readings because it put a load on what I was checking.

Most unusual electrical problem I ever had was on a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower engine.

 

 

This might help someone...........

 

 

Could not get the mower to run and I checked everything, totally stripped it but nothing wrong.

 

I removed the spark plug, grounded it and watched it fire as fulled the start cord................ What could be wrong? My lovely lady said "replace the Spark Plug" to which I thought "what would she know, I have tested it !"

 

Turned out to be a faulty spark plug that ONLY failed under compression...... hows that? Very tricky!

 

regards
