@Hillbilly mowers  Typically they do have a charging system  Up front on the CARB side. Facing the engine, the left side where the spark plugs come out should be a wire.  It will either have an end to connect to the tractor, or go to a post that the tractor connects.  That is the Kill wire to the coil.  On the other side "right" you should see a one or two wires coming out.  That will be your alternator wires.


Pictured is the typical alternator wires (circled) on an oppy.  On 2 wire setups Diode side is the DC charging side, the other is AC lights/acc.

May have to pop the flywheel to see what is up.  Maybe someone cannibalized it.

For that stator, since it does not have the diode, you would need the little box.  I think they put out more amps.  It's a good one.

Here is the one that does not need the box.  As I mentioned the Diode side (red wire in this pic) is DC charging and the other side is for lights.

Both are good stator alternators.

@MightyRaze thanks man I appreciate it very much I place that one u sent in my cart so I can order it but for now I'll have to wait on it so I can focus on git the flywheel off so that I can put a new one one it . But I have one for my other Briggs but the one u sent me like just like the one that I ordered for my 17.5 hp Briggs but it a single cylinder and they look like the same size but will other Briggs works but I have a parts engine but it the the 16.5 oppy but come to find out it has two bolts broke off in the left side head but I got it with my other oppy that is shown in the pic and it was the best looking one so I want it on my mower but the stator on the 16 is in very bad condition with rust where the man I got it from left it out side on the ground.

Last alternator I put on my oppy came from a 12hp single.  You'll find that much like chevrolet engines, the briggs have many interchangeable parts.

@ranch king pro 08 So my buddy doesn't have a ton of experience with them but did say that he's pretty sure it has a tapered shaft on the PTO side and that a Comet Duster was a common clutch on those and similar. I can dig into a little research and see if I can back that up.

@Rustbucket Garage it just takes time to dial it in and get used to it, helps to clean the metal too! Lol. Stick, MIG or Fluxcore? If I had to guess I'd say it looks like you didn't have the amps up high enough and or were moving too fast. Heat, speed and technique are everything, try making a little v pattern as you go, sometimes you want to push the puddle and other times you want to pull it. Practice makes perfect my man! Lol

I've found circles are the easiest for me Off Topic Anything 2024  20240117 just give it time & heat and you'll be stacking dimes  Very Happy

@Hillbilly mowers I would remove your flywheel and figure out exactly what you have before you buy anything, as @MightyRaze mentioned you might actually have one of the better ones as it is and just need a part that's 1/4 of the cost of the whole thing!

@ranch king pro 08 Different strokes for different folks because what works well for one person may not for the next, circles don't do it for me but half moons, V's and zigzags do! Lol. Stacking dimes really does look good but looks don't equal strength when it comes to welding, some of the ugliest welds are actually the strongest!

@ranch king pro 08 I really don't know, I've never dove into the snowmobile world to be honest but if I were you I'd be deep into research, more specifically Rupp sleds and others that have that engine. Forums are the BEST source of information outside of talking with knowledgeable people but it can be alot of digging to find the specific info you're after...

You might even get lucky and find someone in your area parting out a machine with compatible parts!

@Rustbucket Garage it just takes time to dial it in and get used to it, helps to clean the metal too! Lol. Stick, MIG or Fluxcore? If I had to guess I'd say it looks like you didn't have the amps up high enough and or were moving too fast. Heat, speed and technique are everything, try making a little v pattern as you go, sometimes you want to push the puddle and other times you want to pull it. Practice makes perfect my man! Lol

Brand new stick machine, yeah moving too fast and my arc was too long. Brand new to welding and starting with stick, figure it’s easier to move from stick to MiG than the inverse.

@Rustbucket Garage well if that's the case... practice on different thicknesses of metal, turn up the heat until you burn through then dial it down until you don't and keep practicing! You can actually cut metal with a stick welder and why speed is also an important factor, stick welding is tricky to learn because of how far out the rod sticks until it's burned down a bit and also striking the arc itself cam be tricky! Sometimes you almost have to drag start quickly to strike that arc then slow down to the pace you're going to weld at, it takes time and patience to learn so practice, practice, practice! I can't emphasize enough how important it is to practice and some learning from trial and error so dont be shy to play with setting amd speed to see what works best for YOU!

I learned on a stick welder and would say it would be easier to learn on wire feed, it's more forgiving and you would learn alot of technique first. With that said, stick welding is the best in my opinion, I find once you've mastered it you'll get a better quality of weld!

Sorry for rhe rant! Lol
