8 HP Briggs stator question

Recommended Posts


I have a question regarding the 8hp briggs engine that is in the old Jackobsen rider I just purchased.

I was doing a tune on this 8hp briggs and when I pulled the flywheel I noticed that the engine was equipped with a stator coil that runs off of the flywheel.there are 2 wires that come off of the stator and run onto a small block on the starter motor mount. The top wire is fused and runs up into the steering tower. The bottom of the two wires seems to be a female type plug that is not plugged up with any wire at all. I do not have a wire diagram and am assuming that this plug is for the headlamp option that my tractor does not have? Can anyone tell me if that is correct?

Thanks, Mark

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
