no start then no shut off

First time posting. Have around a 1990 CTC lawn tractor I modified to push snow(mounted blade to back and use blade lifter{with levers} to lift blade.Rear axle shattered( I know this one wasn't made for this task but has lasted for 4years) so took motor off this tractor and put onto other tractor(sear's model) I bought with blown engine--but couldn't get it to work so put back on original tractor and replaced rear axle with used one. Plugged everything back in (same as before)BUT now won't start. Played around and put some fuel into carb(cleaned out fuel bowl then blew out and changed fuel line and filter) and it started but kept stalling.Finally got it to run BUT then it won't shut off unless I disconnected yellow wire and crossed it with headlight to ground. Any suggestions?

It would help to know something about what engine and mower you're dealing with. Brand and model #s.
