Troy Bilt Ignition problems! Help!

My ignition has taken a dump on my troy bilt riding tractor. Its maybe 5-7 years old. I want to wire it up with a toggle and push button start. But I don't know what wires need to be connected to where.

I have removed the ignition and here are the wires that I have:
red with yellow stripe
2 red with black stripe
black
blue
red


the model is 28Q777 or it might be 280777 -- its hard to tell
this is on the 14hp motor

Can someone please tell me how to wire this up? This is my last resort to why the thing wont start. I can jump it and it'll start to turn over, but wont run b/c the iginition is apart. I have check all other eletrical components and they are in working order. (tested them at work with an engineer)

The tractor does have lights and the seat saftey switch. I don't want either of these to work. I just want the bare bones wiring so the thing will start and charge the battery.

Thanks a lot!

You'd be time, money, and effort ahead to replace the ignition switch if that's all that's wrong. I can't identify which wire is which just by the color. Their placement on the old switch might help figure out which is which.

Blue should be for the lights, red should be battery pos, and black is probably but not definitely ground.

You, hopefully, still have the Troy manuals which came with the tractor. You will need a schematic of the wiring of this particular machine in order to do a re-wire. If you do not have a schematic check their website for a manual download based on the units model and serial numbers.

Only online manuals for Troybilt I have found, (for free download) are now on the MTD archive site. They only have an operators manual http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/manuals/272904.PDF for the engine, with no schematic. It does however mention a repair manual part no. 272147 And briggs has an IPL but only for sale http://shop.briggsandstratton.com/BS...ngineType=0125
