111 wiring questions

Hi guys, I am normally over at the ford and Sears sections. I have a question about a wiring harness maybe you guys can help me with. I'm not very JD knowledgeable at this point.

My neighbor recently acquired an 83 111 without a motor and he is having me put a motor in it. I am using a 12.5hp briggs model 28r707 1120-e1. I know which wires are which on the briggs, yellow to magneto and red from stator to key switch. I got a complete tractor that I pulled the motor from and traced the wires on the briggs.

But on the JD, there are 2 wires, A red and white wire, I'm not too sure of where they go. It looks to me that the red wire would go to the stator, since it comes off the solenoid, to kill the engine when the key is turned off:dunno:. But the white wire is where I am stumped because it has a small eyelet on the end of it. Does the white wire go to the magneto on the engine? You can see what I have to work with in the pic below. Let me know if I'm missing anything. :thanku: Bob.

I just went out and took some pictures. Hopefully these will help.
Here is the white wire on a stock 111. It's on the left (as sitting on tractor) side.

Here is the white wire on my 111 that also has a B&S 12hp repower.

Here is the red wire on the stock 111. This wire is on the right. Ignore the white wire zip tied to the starter wire, it is for my headlights.

Here is the red wire on the repowered 111. Ignore the yellow & green wires, they are the PTO rewire from the PO. You can't see a crimp connecing it to the red wire on the connector. The white wire on the connector is just clipped.

I didn't do the repower, so I can't help you any with that part. Let me know if you need anything else.
