    I have spent several hours serching this but cant get a clear picture/diagram of which wires to use if I want to put aftermarket lights on my turf tiger/scag.
    its an 06 year model 27 horse koler 61" cut. Can anybody help me? If you have done this all I need is a pic of the wire harness. Thanks in advance for any help.

    All I would do is connect a in-line 20 amp fuse holder to the pos. battery lead on the starter solenoid. From the other end of the fuse holder a 14 ga. wire to a 20 amp two post toggle switch mounted where ever on the unit, Then run the two positive light wires to the other post on the switch and hook the two negitive light wires to a good body ground. If the lights you buy only has one wire and grounds thru the mounting brackets all the easier as long as they are mounted to metal and not plastic.

    Wiring this way would eleminate any future problems with overloading the factory wire harness on the unit because the lights would be on their own harness (circuit).
    Good Luck

    my SCAG OEM light kit is a basic 2 prong switch mounted on thr back of the right side light mounting bracket with a quick disconect plug with the wires with a inline fuse running to the battery terminals if you still need pictures let me know . twj
