Hi there my first post and asking for a little help, i have bought a 3108 mower which was in quite a state of disrepear, Put a battery on turned the key and the coil started smoking, put the multimeter over the earth shut off to the coil and its 12v having traced the wires the coil earth is connected to the magneto wire behind the ign switch. had to buy a new coil as the old one was not smelling to good after that.
Also where the regulator wiring loom plugs in to the main loom the earth wire had burnt though.
Thinking i just best strip the loom and trace where wires are going as even the seat switch or pto switch have been bypassed, if anyone has a good easy to follow wiring diagram that would be a great help
thank you again
