For best help, please provide the Sears Model Number of your tractor. Usually it's 917.xxxxxx, but a few other prefixes are also used for different manfs.
It is usually found under the seat, although some of the old models may have it elsewhere.

There are over 1,000 different Sears Models, using well over 200 different electrical schematics.
Two tractors can have consecutive Model Numbers with very different electrical schematics. Confusing them can result in destroyed ignition modules, wiring harnesses etc.
Being able to immediately look at the correct schematic can result in MUCH faster, more accurate assistance regarding electrical problems.

If you can't find the numbers, try to provide other help, such as engine brand, model, type/spec etc.
Type of transmission, number of gears, mower deck width etc. may all help in identification.

The easier you make it for us, the easier we can make it for you.
