You need to get a wiring diagram and you will need to get a different ignition switch as well.

Another  thing to consider is that the pull start only engine may not have a charging system. If this is the case you may need to use the fly wheel and stator from the electric start engine. See if you can find an owners manual for your Wheel Horse, they include a wire diagram in most of their manuals. As for the carb, there are a lot of low priced reproductions out there for the techy engines.
