is it possible to hook up solenoid wrong?

Does it matter which side of the starter solenoid I hook up the battery and which side I hook up the wire to the starter? I removed an old solenoid and replaced it but am unsure if it matters which post I hook the battery and starter wires to.

Also can you tell me which magneto I need for my 1994 Briggs 12.5 engine? I have my burnt out one right here and the number on it is....9432P. Jim

Welcome to MTF. I just read your post in the intro section. Do you happen to know the model # of the tractor? A sticker with that information could be under the hood, under the seat and sometimes on the "rear" of the tractor. With a model # we can pull up parts schematics along with wiring diagrams etc.

For the Briggs you should be able to enter the model/type/code numbers on the Briggs site and pull up a parts list.
