I have a Work Horse 700 I want to get running. It cranks but has no spark. The first item I looked at was the rectifier panel. It looks incomplete, missing fuses and a cover. Can someone help me get this panel in working condition?

The 2 items missing are not fuses. They are diodes to rectify the AC current from the stator to produce the DC voltage required to charge the battery.

Your ignition is self powered and requires a ground to kill the ignition. The green wire likely goes to the ignition switch which should be open in the run postion. When turned off it grounds that wire. Disconnect it at the panel to eliminate any possible problems with wiring and switch and see if it starts. If not clean the points. If it runs ground that terminal to ground and the engine should stop. Do not allow any battery voltage into that kill circuit or you will be replacing the ignition coil.

Someone is making new covers for that panel and recall someone having replacement diodes but you can also make them up.
