Ok guys i got a 03 craftsman the original engine blew and last guy put a 12hp flatt briggs on it i got all the old wiring set up out and just put the basic in key switch for ignition and switch for headlights that gets its power only when key switch is in the on position. Now the engine has only one wire coming from the stator? I know the deal, you have one for lights and other for charging. My question is, the single wire that comes out, when i touch it to the positive battery cable it sparked so I quickly moved it. Is it suppose to be grounded or hooked to the positive lead?
im running the lights off the battery but the engine has only the one wire stator and that wire should run to the battery to keep it charged? my prob is when i hook it to the battery it sparks a little
That wire is probably the lighting wire. It generally makes a pretty nice spark when you tap it to +. Don't hook it up solid or you'll cook the lighting circuit (done that one before). There should be a second wire for charging, and if there isn't it probably broke off.
