Pick up old Ward model tmo-33931A/I1894 with B&S model 422707 type 1510-01 code-89072612 The engine runs good when jump started but will not start with switch. The previous owner has been working on wiring. I can trace wiring but if anyone has information or wiring diagram it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'll bet its the switch, 3 vehicles - 2 new switches...
Bypass to test, also as you are doing, check the wiring, a man can never assume anything.

Thanks for reply earthworm. It turns out to be the deck switch. took wires off switch and bypassed switch and cranked but would not start. Had to take carb off and clean. may have to replace switch but it may be hard to find. I think this gt was made in 1989. Found broken pulley on mowing deck waiting on new pulley to come in. Maybe one day i will get it running.
