Does anyone have a late Briggs manual, or JD Service Manual that tells how to check the regulator on an L100 JD lawn tractor?
Briggs engine model 31F707-0129-E1 s/n 050315ZE.
I'm going to try the local library, but don't know if they have anything on this model engine.
The charging system seems to work, 14V at the battery when running. It runs the battery down in a day or two. I have kept an extra battery charged and swap in a fresh one each week so my neighbor can mow.
I get a reading of about 2V with the switch off, leads connected between the neg. cable and battery. Unplugging the red wire on the regulator, same test reads 0 voltage. I think a diode is bad in the regulator or possibly one hidden in the wiring. That's why I want to know if there is a test for the regulator.
Thanks in advance.
