After looking at more of the diagrams.
You'll need to determine #1 is your seat switch a grounded one or part of the positive circuit.
You don't want to run battery voltage through your ignition switch and seat switch to ground.
Knowing the model and studying the correct diagram, you should be able to make it work.

Wile I was out running around, I took this picture of my quick and easy bypass on my loader tractor.

I needed to use it one day and it died on me. Been running it like this for 3 years now

I am going to give this a shot soon. Thank you! Curiously (to me) The machine starts and runs with the board unplugged. Is this normal?

931019 through 931026 have 6 terminals on the ignition switch. They do not have the grounded seat switch, and do not supply power to the coil through the board.

The machine starts and runs with the connector pulled off of the board. Is this normal?

I am going to try the jumper setup from Wm's post. When I unplug the board the machine still runs. Is this normal?

I am thinking that it shouldn't. But I am guessing. With a machine this old there is a good chance it was already messed with.

I replied to your question on post #18. Models 931019 through 931026 will start with the board unplugged. They do not supply power to the coil through the board.

Models 8 through 18, the diagrams you were looking at have the grounded seat switch.
Wire colors are Red, Red, Yellow, Black, Yellow, Yellow?

Whoooo Hoooooo! Success! I only tested it briefly because I am waiting for the correct pins for my driveshaft but the PTO and Mower work! Thank You!

Wm McNett May your camels be spitless and your oasis never run dry! Thanks to every one who cast light into my Darkness!
