Another question ,Guys. I know the engine runs independently of battery. Battery is for the starter and any accessories. So, without appearing too stupid, may I ask the the guys who know, where does the wire marked "M" on the key switch run to? It carries voltage ,but why is it marked for magneto if theres no place to connect it and the magneto creates its own charge. When I got this tractor this wire from the switch was just dangling and I don't see any purpose for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I didn't think that "M" should be hot. It should be grounded when the key is in the "off" position and an open circuit when it is in the "run" position. Look at this thread: http://gardentractor...ignition switch .
If you have a coil you would need an "I" terminal on the switch to go to the coil. It would be hot for the ignition to work. Post some pics of the tractor, engine switch and wiring. Good Luck, Rick
This manual for a D4-10 shows a 3 prong switch on page 16. http://gardentractor...d-parts-manual/
