Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

Expert:  JON replied 1 month ago.

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GET A SWITCH THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR ENGINE.

THE MOWER ORIGINAL SWITCH IS: 925-06119B

WHAT ENGINE IS THE REPLACEMENT?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Your response makes no since. I put the same size engine that came out of it. The key switch worked just fine before. 20 HP Briggs
Expert:  JON replied 1 month ago.
The size of the engine does not matter. What was the model type in code of the old Engine versus the new engine
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am not sure but Briggs told me that it is a direct replacement
Expert:  JON replied 1 month ago.
They have told me that many times also and I always run into wiring issues. You need the wiring schematics of the engine you have , and the schematic of your model machine. You will have to splice some of the wires to the correct spots. Direct replacement to Briggs is normally the shaft size is the same to work with clutch and pullies.
I will opt out and see if another expert may be able to assist if you would like
