Manage My Life

Does anyone know the wiring color code for the Craftsman lawn tractor, model 917.254450, serial # 1919510928?

I have an OLD craftsman lawn tractor, 44 inch cut, 18 HP, B & S. I am looking for the electric clutch wiring color code. I have a red and black wire on the harness which connect to the clutch wires. The electric clutch has a BLUE and GREEN wire on it. The problem is, which color attaches from the electric clutch to the harness wires. The red wire at the harness is hot, so which one on the electric clutch goes to that ? The BLUE one or the GREEN one? If anyone knows something, please email me at marcprete@juno.com

Thank you for your question.

I have provided you with a wiring diagram for your tractor below. When it comes to connecting the electric clutch, it should mot matter what wire goes where. A clutch this old does not have a diode in the circuit so you can connect it either way.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
