Welcome to the forums.

There are several different wiring diagrams for that engine based on it's manufactured year.
That engine uses a short to ground to stop the engine.

In the wiring diagrams they show an ignition switch and a stop switch..... do you have both ?
The CD module most likely needs to be grounded to work properly.

I'm not that familiar with that engine.....
Does it have holes for mounting and the bolts/screws aren't there ?

There should be a black/yellow wire at each coil pack that is connected together. That wire gets shunted to ground to stop the engine.

motor shut down

motor model#125xcb ser.#2212 the only thong I see on the bracket is 4 rubber parts screwed into the back of the bracket,that line up with 4 metal parts coming off the motor,the only way I can see it connecting to each other if it is magnetic

I'm at a loss..... could you post a picture ? http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html

I know the CDI modules are mounted with two screws each. I can't find any pictures of the mounting plate they are attached to.

On edit:
I was looking around. This was the cleanest picture I could grab. It's from a video.

what the picture is showing is the bracket with the coils and cdi are on,on the back of that is where the 4 rubber standoffs are,no mounting holes to engine,just 54 round standoffs with a round metal head.no stop sw.

Sorry bob..... I can help you with wiring problems but I've never worked on that model engine so I can't offer you any help with the mounting plate. You should be able to see what the actual fastener or fastening method is. The engines get a lot of vibration so it must be a substantial mounting system. If it's just four rubber pieces then maybe they broke ?
