With a dual circuit alternator and the flywheel off and the alternator disconected from the equipment harness should there be continuity threw the AC output wire to the engine block? Bruce

If it's a Kohler with the unregulated charging DC and the AC for lights, the AC should show 0.4 ohms to ground. If it is 0 ohms, the stator is shorted, if it is infinity then there is an open in the stator or lead wire. No lights?

Thanks guys. It is a Briggs and a new alternator. Sounds like it's right but for some reason I'm not getting the output from it like I should and I'm having a heck of a time figuring out why. Thanks again.

I am not up to speed with cast iron B&Ss, but on a Kohler you really have to rev it up to get decent light output. You can measure open circuit (lights off) voltage at ~3000rpm, supposed to be 15V _AC_ scale on a K, I would guess something similar on a B&S?

Yes, the Briggs does light better with higher RPM's. You measure the Briggs Dual circuit alternator at 3600 and should have 14 AC volts and 2 to 4 DC amps. I get about 5 to 6 volts and 0 amps. Brand new alternator and electrical parts aren't returnable.

I still have the old one, (alternator) I messed with it for a long time and finaly found out there was supposed to be a Diode in the one wire that somone had cut out. Very hard to figure this stuff out because the manuals aren't all that clear, even Briggs people dont give ya a straight answer and the local supplier's seem to not know either. I dont know how to tell if the magnets are bad. I know they all are still magnetic, that's about it. I have searched the site for somone with the same model engine and dont see anyone with it.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
