White Outdoor Lawnmower LT-1650(2000 i think)

the solenoid under the seat was not sending out any electricity so i replaced it. now the lawn mower turns out but not fast enough and the negative battery cable over heats. it trys starts to shortout until i unhook it.
i am not sure if i have it wired correctly. so does anyone know where the 4 wires ont the solenoid go. there are 2 bigger red wires, 1 gray and 1 orange/white. i have one red wire goin from battery to solenoid and the other red wire going from solenid to the front of the engine. i have the orange/white wire goin to the solenoid. and i have the gray wire going to a body ground.
do i have it wired wrong? thanks for any help

Do you have the smaller fused wire (should be red) hooked to the larger cable going to the battery ?

The gray fused wire needs to go to the large red wire leading to the battery, This wire supplies battery voltage to the tractor wire harness. That leaves the orange/white to go on the small post on the solenoid. There were a few of these units that had two black harness ground wires installed under one of the solenoid mounting screws.

If you take your model number, starts with 13A, and has 11 total digits and numbers (I think), and is followed by LT-1650, you can plug this in at partstree.com and get a look at the schematic under "electrical system."

You might need the serial number too, I'm not sure.

This info might be under the seat, I'm not sure about that either.
