I need some more help on my f525 project. I bought this mower in pieces, and the engine had a broken rod.
I now having the engine reassembled and back in the machine.
I now have some wiring questions. I need to know what is between the battery and starter. Is it just a cable or is there something else?

I will look tomorrow for you,
Heres a pix of the starter,kinda close quarters but you can see theres one red wire that goes along with the pos cable from the battery.

So there's nothing between the starter and the battery?
No,just the positive cable.
Ok, I think I go that figured out. I do not have a pto switch yet. Am I correct in assuming I can't start this mower without that plugged in?
Im thinking it will start without the pto switch but not sure.
Update. The mower is together and cranking. I am not getting fuel to the carb. How exactly does that pump on this mower? Do I need a new one?

Also when I crank it to try to start it, the forward/reverse linkage is getting hot. Am I grounded somewhere I shouldn't be?
