Your battery may bad. Unhook it,check voltage, charge it 24 hours. Check voltage, should about 12 volts. Let set 24 hours, check voltage , if not 12 volts, no good.

How can I test a riding mower regulator? (puts out 23 amps @ 3800 rpms. My dmm only goes up to 10 amps.(system won't charge battery while in operation. Can it be tested off the mower? Mower is a Craftsman...


Simplest test is to leave it on the engine, battery hooked up normally. Run the engine at normal full speed (not just idling) and use your voltmeter to measure the voltage across the battery with your DMM. If you measure 13.5 to 14 volts, your rectifier/regulator is probably OK.
It can't easily be tested off the mower. You'd need a source of AC at 24 volts to simulate the motor's stator winding, and a load that draws about 23 amps at 12 volts.
Don't forget a bad battery can cause failure to charge - it's not always the regulator.

Wiring harness is missing


If all you want to do is see if it runs, forget the wiring. There may - or may not - be a connection on the bottom of the carburettor. If thers is, connect it to the battery +.

Use lump leads - ground the battery '-', and connect battery + to the starter. Engine will crank. Operate choke/throttle controls as necessary.

One of the wires in question will be the engine cut-off. The others will be DC out (battery charge and clutch), DC (or AC) out for lights etc, and alternator ground.

Use a test meter to determine what's on each wire. The one with no (measurable) output will be the cut otff. Ground it to stop the engine (or pull off the plug lead).

Location of battery charge problems


The alternator, for producing 120/240vac, is located at the other end of the engine. The alternator for charging the battery is part of the AC alternator.

Charging circuit breaker? Don't know that one, I thought they were fused near where the battery was installed.
