What is this in this picture?

I have an AC/608 with a tiller and the engine has what looks like a fuse on the side of the alternator. There is a fuse behind the dash as in picture 2. Is the one on the alternator needed for the some reason? larry

That piece that looks like a fuse holder should have connected to directly on the part where your arrow shows. It is the charge wire from the engine alternator. Somebody lost the original connector and soldered a jumper(red) to get to the ammeter.

Bob...That actually is a fuse holder stretched out. Maybe someone mounted that part to do just what you said. I take it from your post that I could remove that and simply connect the black wire and the red wire together and be ok. larry

HI, The wire that mates with this socket has a diode in it and this is the rectifier to charge the battery. Briggs sells the diodes separately to solder on to the wire. DO NOT PUT A FUSE OR CONNECT THIS WIRE TO THE BATTERY OR 12VOLTS WITHOUT A DIODE IN SERIES WITH THE LINE. It will smoke the stator windings under the flywheel. Good luck Al Eden

WOW, thanks Al. That is some good information to know. I hope I can find the part I need as I'm not very good at explaining to parts people when I need something I no nothing about. They sort of give me a blank stare...:D larry

The diode is extremely available. It should be in stock at any decent parts store, from either Briggs or the aftermarket. I keep at least one in stock at my shop just in case, and have used them often. Just tell them your engine number, and the word "diode", and you'll get a box that looks like it would hold 100 diodes, with one inside. Connection requires soldering.

        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
