I have a 17 hp B&S engine on a Murray riding mower. It blows fuses immediately after replacing them. I've traced it to the red wire coming out of the stator. I noticed the pin on the red wire had arced inside the connector. I found a bare spot on the wire coming from the soleniod and repaired it. IO can't find any other bare spots in any of the wiring. the only thing that looks funny is the arced area on the connector from the stator. How can I test the stator? Any other ideas?
