Awesome machine!
Congrats on getting it running!!!

That wire is probably for the kill switch to ground out the ignition when turned off.

Thanks for the great video and congratulations on buying a great machine. I think Brian is right about the kill wire. Our Ride A Matic has a switch mounted on the dash to kill the engine. I'm not sure what was original. I liked seeing the fuel line on your tractor because ours came with rubber fuel line. Being made back in the 50's I thought it would have been different. Keep us updated on your progress.

The drive sistem is based off the Ridemasters that why you smash two pullys togather. :D

The green power rated belts you get at any hardware are the right belts for any garden tractor.
