Kohler 26 hp courage plus Craftsman GT 6000 mower

I have a Kohler 26 hp courage plus engine on my new Craftsman GT 6000 mower.After blowing 2 fuses after turning ignition switch on,saw smoke coming out of the blower housing through the debris guard smells like burning wires.Any idea what could be shorting out around the flywheel area? Thanks

Is the battery possibly connected backwards? You could have a burnt stator and/or coils.

I've had electrical smoke arise from that area when a faulty ignition switch sent current back up the cut-out wire and melted the coil on my magneto . . . . permanently.
