charging system

Recommended Posts

can someone explain quickly how a briggs i/c motor charges? whats under the flywheel? if you unplug the charge wire then test with a test light it lights the light when you start the engine. if you leave it hooked up and run it for a half hour the battery will be totally dead. is there some kind of regulator somewhere or hows it work??

Had a similar problem with my tecumseh. Found out I had a shorted wire that only touched metal when everything vibrated just right. Fixed the short and the battery started staying chargeed again. Steve

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
