engine swap progress on my sub 15 and need some help from wv or someone else

well today i pulled the 16hp briggs off the ss14 and pulled the 14hp off the sub 15. i got the starter generator bracket figured out and getting it finished tomorrow with a torch. during my destruction i happen to look behind the dash and i was like ohhh S***. i seen a ground wire going from the voltage regulater mounting bolt up to the ignition switch bare and frayed all over so i investigated a bit more and found the reason my volt meater was bouncing all over the place its got about 2 inch bare spot. i dont like small 4 legged critters. so tomorrow i am pulling gas tank and clutch bracket replacing those 2 wires and possibly more. i also need some help. when i got this tractor i had a black wire hanging by the engine i think this is kill wire but not sure. wv if you can can u snap a couple pictures of this wire plz

Just wondering if the sub 15 came with an amp meter and the SS-15 came with a volt meter. Both my SS-15s have volt meters and appear to be factory.
