Thank you for your question.



I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the model number you submitted. According to the parts list this model has a fuel solenoid installed on the bottom of the carburetor. The engine has the highest unregulated charging system on it. I checked in the manual for voltage output. It only gives the minimum output. 15.9 volts should be ok. I know my battery charger charges at 17 volts and I have never had a problem with any of my batteries.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Thanks for the help. Do I understand correctly that there is no regulator on the charging system?

Perhaps I'm over thinking the set up in the wiring and charging system on this particular tractor. I have a similar situation with a tractor I own. My charging system is charging at 16.2 volts but it just seems high to me. I have putzed with tractors off and on and they all seemed to have some sort of regulator or resistor in the mix somewhere. I would really appreciate it if you would be able to shed some light on this for me. My tractor also doesn't have a regulator, where you think it would anyway. My tractor is a (under the seat) 247.289010 and (motor) 31c707 1347 B2. Is the 16.2 volts in a safe range? I just want to make sure because I would hate to cook anything. Its a great running tractor otherwise. Thanks a million for your time.
