Thank you for your question. I know it is frustrating to connect the engine if you do not have a diagram. Over the years Briggs and Stratton has put out many of the twin cylinder engines. Unfortunately, the wiring also changed. If you could please reply below with the complete model number off the engine, I will be sure to provide you with the correct wiring.

I hope to hear from you.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

A:

the1andonlyone, Thank you for posting the model number of the engine. This engine has three wires. There should be a single black wire. This wire is the kill wire that connects to the ignition coil. The other two wires have a two-pin connector on the end of them. These are from the stator to charge the battery and power the lights. The red wire has a diode that converts the ac voltage to DC voltage. This is the wire that charges the battery. The black wire puts out AC voltage that is usually used to power the headlights. Now some tractors use this wire and others do not. If you are installing this engine on a Craftsman tractor, please reply below with the tractor model number I will look up the tractor wiring diagram. Then I can tell you if the tractors light work off AC or DC voltage. I hope to hear from you. Mark.

A:

the1andonlyone, Thank you for posting the tractor model number. It looks like the original engine on this tractor had a stator brake. The new engine does not have this brake. The only wires you need to connect is the black and red. The black wire from the tractors engine harness will connect to the black kill wire on the engine. That wire should go to the armature. The red wire from the tractors engine harness should connect to the red wire coming from the engine. This wire is the charging wire. The other wires in the tractors engine connector are not used. They are for the engine brake and fuel shutoff solenoid. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you Mark

A:

the1andonlyone, The orange wire is the AC output from the stator. Your tractor will not use this wire because the headlights on the tractor operate off DC Voltage. The red wire is the DC output from the stator. You need to connect this wire to the Red wire on the tractor harness. It is used to charge the battery. The black wire should be the kill wire. The black wire should be connected to the armature on one end. You need to connect the other end to the black wire that is in the tractors harness that goes to the engine. That should be the only wires on the engine. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Mark

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the battery goes dead between uses, I recommend disconnecting the wires going to the ignition switch when you turn it off. Next time you go to use the tractor plug the harness in and check the operation. If the battery is dead, I suspect the battery is defective. If it works fine, I suspect the ignition switch is defective.

If the battery goes dead while you are using the tractor, I suspect the charging system is defective. To determine the problem with the charging system you will need a volt ohmmeter. If this is what is going on and you have a meter, just let me know I will be happy to assist you diagnostics. I hope this is helpful.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
