    418-A Won't shutoff

    Thanks for the help everyone. I found the black wire with a blue stripe chewn in half... damn mice. I put it back together with a butt connector and it shuts off just fine now! Wohoo!

    Thanks Pfrederi, I'll give that a try. If you don't mind me asking, what kills the mower when the switch is turned off?

    Sorry for the late response, Where would I start to trace the wiring back from the engine? And yeah, there is a good chance that a mouse may have chewed one of the wires. I'll go attempt to locate the broken wire.

    418-A Won't shutoff

    Thanks for your response Gwest_ca! The only method I can find to shut off my wheel horse is to pull the spark plug wires. The seat switch won't kill it either. The ignition switch I have only has terminals labeled as : A, M, B, R, S, and 3 KEY OFF: A+3, A+M, 3+M KEY ON: A+B, A+R, B+R KEY START: B+S 3 is the slanted pin on the bottom right.

    418-A Won't shutoff

    Howdy y'all! I'm having some trouble with my 418-A. I think it is ignition related, but I'm not completely sure. It starts and runs perfectly fine, but when I go to turn it off, it doesn't work. I can just turn the key into the 'off' position and take the key out while the tractor is still running and it will continue to run as if I hadn't turned the key off. I'm trying to keep this tractor as original as possible, so I don't really want to buy a new ignition. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! *EDIT* Wheel Horse 418-A Kohler Engine 18 HP Model No. M18QS Spec. No. 24510 Serial No. 1619706606
