zim bob,

The FULL model AND serial numbers off your unit along with the engine model AND spec numbers would be helpful.....

If it blows as soon as you turn the key then it might have a bad short, so go over all the wires and make sure they arent grounding. The starter could be bad also, but i bet it is the ignition switch, they do go bad sometimes and cause that to happen too.

I don't know this machine but, I'd check the ignition switch is faulty and retrace all you did when removing the deck to see if you pinched a wire when refitting. Got yourself a PIA job there. Good luck Phil:)

Chances are that a wire is being pinched then, if you changed the switch. I dont think you need a new wire harness, just find the short , it might be very small like a vibration was rubbing the coating off the wire, you can do this too, replace the fuse and put the mower in a very dark place and have someone with you and turn the key and look for a park when starting the mower and if there is a short in the wire harness, you will see where , because it will briefly spark. That uis the best way to find a short in the harness.

ok heres a guess to narrow down my search on the ignition when the key is on then its fine, so when the key is on then theres power to voltage regulater, hour meter and seat relay. but when i turn it to start then it blows so the only other funtion is starter relay, right? so it should be in that wire or could it be a bad relay? thanks for all the help guys your making it a little less frustrating lol

ok the mower isnt blowing anymore fuses, but the ignition isnt doing anything we have to take pliers and jump the sylinoid. and im not getting any spark. could that be because of the ignition or something else.
