So i have noticed slower cranking for my tractor the last few times i have used it. Battery is newer and in good condition terminals are tight and corrosion free. Checked at the battery running 3600rpm and i have 12.25v (low). Checked power wire from regulator to batt and i have nothing ign off and batt voltage ign on. Checked with meter in ac volts and running 3600 rpm i had 20v ac. At the stator connector. Form what i read i thought that was good. So with good power from stator and good connection from regulator to batt and batt being ok i thought i needed a regulator. replaced it with an new oem briggs one still 12.40 at the batt running. These test were done with no elect loads on. How do i know how many amp the stator is ? How many vac should i have out of it? Is it true if i test light from the stator pins to ground when running and ghe test light lights that the stator is shorted to ground and needs replaced? Sorry for all the questions i am an auto mechanic by trade but still learning small engines and having trouble finding the info i need. Also note my machine has briggs vanguard 23hp model #386447 type #0048-g. Thanks for any info mike

Wow! Almost a fire. There was one heck of a load on it. They made a few different stators varying in amps. You can use one out of almost any engine, Intek single cylinder, v-twin or a Vanguard v-twin, single cylinder with a voltage regulator. Pretty much anything with a voltage regulator.

Well mine takes a 592830. Which i think is only 16amps. pretty weak. Would be nice to get a higher amperage. Could i use another startor with my current flywheel and regulator ect...?
