Howdy fellas I'm trying to rewire my '72 15hp cast iron briggs. Unlike the usual starters this has a starter generator and regulator. I'm dumb founded. I'm wanting to get rid of the points and use a new coil. Also wire it up where it uses a push button start and kill switch unless theres a way to use the original key switch. Any help with rewiring it be very helpful. I think this is the correct wiring diagram.

If you get a heavy duty momentary switch for use with cables, you could do a push buttom starting system. You would just need to run a cable from the postive battery post to the switch, then from the switch to the A (Armature) terminal on the s/g.

The voltage regulator is easy too, the F (Field) terminal gets wired to the Field post on the generator, and the Gen post goes to the Armature post on the generator. Some regulators have a ground terminal, but yours may not if it grounds through the mounts. Just be sure to check that out.

Then to get the charging back to the battery, a wire from the Bat terminal on the regulator goes to the hot side of the starter switch. This is also where you would put a fuse and an amp gauge if you were using one.

Here's a diagram to make it a little easier:

One more thing.. if your regulator has an L (Load) terminal, that is where accessories such and lights would be run from. If there is a Load terminal and you will not be using it, be sure to tape it off with electrical tape.

@AllisKidD21 that sure is basic. No starter solenoid needed? All I would need to do is wire the coil to a kill switch right? This is the start switch you talking about? Rewiring 15hp Cast Iron Briggs With Starter Generator  Screen16

Well actually you could use a starter solenoid along with a switch like the one you posted. Just run the battery to the solenoid and wire that part up like usual.

@AllisKidD21 thank you very much. I'll place a order for the carb and base gasket this evening.
