Need help with 71 10xl wiring
Posted July 04, 2015 - 08:23 PM
I'm trying to wiring the ignition switch I got back up to the wires. The switch has B, G, S, M, and L.
I got the one black wire from magneto running to M terminal; the two other wires goes to regulator. I got starter cable hooked to the S terminal.
Im trying to figure where the one brown wire from the SSI regulator. Does it go to the B terminal with the battery?
Also can I ground the switch to a nearby bolt? The wiring diagram says it goes through the light switch but I have no light bulbs.

The wiring from the engine has three wires the two wires connect with the rectifier wires but leaves me one wire. I connected it to the M terminal on the key switch

Are you good with a volt meter? + wire to B & - wire to a ground should give you battery voltage (12 volt)
S start you have going to the solenoid
M goes to the Mag and should short to ground to kill the engine
L on the switch should be where the lights connect if you have lights.
the rectifier supply's 12 + volts to charge the battery and run the lights/etc
If you start the engine and read with the meter from the brown wire to ground and get 12+ volts then it should hook to the B terminal on the switch
B = battery
G = ground
S = start
L = load
Hope this helps Gratton

Is battery low / needs charged ?
Check safety circuits, (seat, mower deck )

There was suppose to be a safety switch from the starter to key switch but I can't find it. Its probably long gone.
This is a new 275 cca battery from wally world

rebuild or new starter, that end looks really wore down.

This is how clean I got it. It turned over good after I reinstalled it but it started to hang up again
