ZTrak 425 Advice Needed

Hello all,

New member here and I am just looking for some help. First, when it comes to engine repair, I may as well be looking in to a human brain. I know next to nothing but a few basics. With that said, I replaced my carburetor to a new one because my engine would not stay running. This solved the problem. Engine fires right up and keeps on running. Now, my problem. I jumped on the mower and lowered the e brake and the engine dies. Move the steering handles, engine dies. This happens when seated or not seated. So I am thinking seat safety switch is bad. So, I tried the bypass, I have the 2 pin switch and just jumpered the connector. I have the same issue. Mower runs fine but try and release the e brake or move the handles and it dies. My thought is, maybe I did something when I changed the carburetor but what? I did not have any issues before I changed the carburetor so what are the odds that I would have issues that I did not cause. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
