I know this is a UK news group, so this may well be OT. I can only hope you will forgive me for posting questions about an American made engine.
Does anyone here know about Briggs and Stratton engines?
I recently changed engines in our ride-on mower.
It had a 12.5 hp and I swapped it for a 13 hp (it used more oil than petrol! (-: ).
It goes well but my original motor had two wires coming out of the alternator (under the flywheel), which plugged into the wiring loom. The 13 hp has only one, and it doesn't seem to have any current when tested with a multi-tester while the motor is going.
Which means the battery isn't getting any charge. Being a magneto ignition this doesn't effect the running of the motor, but since it's electric start only, well as you can guess, I have to charge the battery at night.
Any help however small, will be greatly appreciated.
