    i just finished putting a new briggs ohv motor onto one of my swenson spreaders to replace the 8hp.
    I need to know where to hook the 4 wires, orange(lights), red(charging), black(Magneto), grey(Fuelshut off) where should i hook each of these to?
    MY old controller was mounted on the back of the spreader with a push button to start the motor, a toggle to turn the power onto the motor and a push button for the clutch.
    Could i take the red to the solenoid(if so what side, batt side or starter side?), leave orange unhooked, balck to the toggle start switch, and grey to the other side of the switch?
