    I just swapped out a Kohler CV14 (blown head gasket?) with a new Kohler CV15T. It's on a old Bobcat (no electric start, etc.) with a simple two wire kill switch connection on the engine end, one red wire and one black. Seems like a simple open/close circuit. Checked with meter and the key switch and all safety switches operate as they should. The CV15T has two wires coming off it, one white and one black. I want to make sure they are hooked up correctly so I don't fry anything in the new engine. Thanks for any advice.

    The black wire is the charge wire to the harness.
    The white wire is the kill wire.
