Need Wiring Diagram for Craftsman Riding Mower

tonyreeseSeptember 29, 2008

I had to replace the female terminals on the 3 relays on my 1999 Craftsman 42" riding mower (17.5 HP Kohler engine) because of a short in the wiring. After replacing the terminals the mower no longer has fire to the spark plug. I need a very specific wiring diagram to chase each wire back to its proper place. I would really be grateful for any help.

P.S. The Sears Parts web site only has a general wiring diagram.

P.S.S. I also just replaced the transmission, front spindles, and the entire steering assembly (12-15 hours hard work) so I'm really wanting this monster to run again!

You want a specific wiring diagram, but you don't post the specific Sears number.

is for a 917.259573.

It appears to be the same tractor, but you might compare any switches etc. with to make sure the part numbers match.

Thank you so much, it's exactly what I needed. Have been able to find only general parts diagram til now. I am using this motor on a log splitter and needed to eliminate the safety switches and make sure I had start, run, and charge capabilitys. Thanks again.
