6111 motor swaps

Recommended Posts

pipelayer
I have a blown motor in a 6111 that I got for 200 with a snowblower. I have a b&s 18.5 twin bolted in ready to go except for the wiring. I have 3 wires off the new motor,red/black(on the starter side) and black. The red/black I hooked up to the harness. The single black is my problem. I was able to start it up the other day but was unable to shut it off. I just pulled the plug wires to kill it. I also have a black wire from the tractor that I believe was attached near the old carb. Should this wire just be ground to the motor somewhere. Thanks for any help I get.

start motor again and see if grounding black wire from motor shuts off tractor check voltage on black wire with key and again with motor running if no voltage check for continuty with ground You will need a voltage meter for tests, cheap one at Radio Shack for about $10. Ask them how to set it for continuity check And for 12 volt DC voltage check. They are very easy to use
