I think so, I have recently bought a john deere 116 to restore and there are 2 wires that are not going to anything that I can't seem to find out where they goOne is a red wire that is grouped with a white and yellow white...the yellow wire goes to the anti-backfire solenoid and the white wire seems to be a ground of some sort...not sure what the red is forThe other wire is a black wire that runs under the base of the flywheel towards the front of the mowerI have looked around the area the wires could possibly fit and can't seem to figure it out

I saw another post with this diagram but it said it was for a 116 H and mine does not have hydrostatic

Should be no difference other than the neutral switch

OK, well im still not sure where the wires are going but thank you anyway for your time

The two Purple wires for neutral switch go to the top of the transmission where the switch is.

I need to trace a red wire and a black wire that are bare towards the front of the mower...there doesn't appear to be any terminals for them to go to...

Black is going to be the ground, red is power, are there any lights?

There are no lights

Did it ever have lights?
