Many thanks for your help, but I still can't find an owners manual/wiring diagram for the 917.254451. Sears nor anyof the other manual sellers on the net have it. I did resolve my electricl problem, for now anyway.

NEW PROBLEM: B&S 18hp, engine model 422707, two cyl w/ 3 screw mount fuel pump/carb.

There are two adjustment screws, one is the idle speed, the other idle mix. Does anyone know the basic # of turns for each???? I'm all screwed up here and can't seem to get back to ground zero.....

Tryed to mow last night and the da#* thing kept stalling out on me.

I should mention the idle speed is not the 1 1/2 adjustment, just idle/air mix. Idle speed should be what the engine will idle at without laboring, but smoothly.

Thanks to both of you, think the carb situation is now under control and looking at the manual for comparisons.
