    I've had my old snapper comet for a while and recently purchased a used engine to liven it up. The problem is that I'm having trouble wiring it back correctly. It has a 12 hp B&S push button start, and also an ignition on/off key switch mounted on the front near the steering. I see one wire coming out near the starter where my previous engine had two. But I think it has something to do with ignition. I know it's not the battery, it's charged. But I'm unsure of the starter switch (push button) and the other piece of the ignition located right underneath the starter switch. I think it may be a solenoid but it looks very small compared to the other solenoids I've seen. Please help with any suggestions.
