    Default Bolens 1600 Hydro

    Greetings from Canada,

    My first post, and already I'm seeking help.

    The Briggs 16 hp in my Bolens won't shut off. I've disconnected every connector in sight and still have to pull both spark plug cables to kill it.

    Maybe the "Off" position on the ignition switch is supposed to short the ignition circuit to ground and mine is defective?

    I've Googled for a wiring diagram but no luck. Any good suggestions much appreciated.

    Cheers.

    It's OK. I found wiring diagram etc. on mytractorsforum.com under 1600 Hydro Eliminator 1668.

    Ignition switch is supposed to short the ignition to ground. Mine doesn't, yet.

    Thanks anyway!

    Welcome to the site.

    I would try a new ignition switch first.

    I would look at the wiring from the ignition switch to the engine for any bad connections or open wires, then the ignition switch.
