tecumseh wiring

i have a tecumseh tvm220 143.356202 that i just put in my toro 935 rider and i have no clue as to which wires i need to put where there are three wires coming from the engine one that is white or yellow hard to tell that has no connector on it and two that are bundled with a connector there colors are red and green. i have no starter in it yet but would like to hook up the rest of the wiring so my key and charging will work. thank you for your assistance.

Hello Kelleydm!

The white wire is the kill wire. It connects to the switch, which ground it when the engine is to be stopped. The red and green wires come from the alternator. (which indicates that this engine is equipped for a starter). The red wire is the battery charge wire, the green is for lights.

Alternator Hook-Up

The alternator wires (1 red, 1 green) is a 3amp D/C charging
system. Red is D/C charging wire (3 amp), and green is the
magneto ground, or kill wire. Right behind the electric starter,
you may see another green wire coming out from under the
blower housing and plugs onto a spade terminal there @ the
12 o'clock position. The 6 o'clock position on this terminal IS
where the kill wire would connect from the ignition switch
(that white or yellow wire). If you're a bit confused by all
this...you can run a wire from the red wire plug side DIRECTLY
TO the "+" side of the battery, and then just run the kill wire
wire to that spade terminal behind the starter. Let us know
if you run into any "stumbling points" on this. It's pretty
simple to get hooked up.

have look at the markings on my ingnition switch and am a bit confused as to which is which on it. it is a 6 terminal. from bottom up it goes like this there are two on the bottom and one on right is marked with a A and the one on left is marked with an M. the next two up the one on right is marked with a B and the one on left is marked with an R. the on above those has a S on it. the other terminal has a 3 on it and is on the edge off to the left of the rest. thank you.
