lawn tractor charging voltage
I have a Craftsman lawn tractor 24 HP B&S engine, model 917.288662. I recently replaced a bad battery with a brand new one and checked the voltage across the battery with the engine running. At idle, it reads 13.9V and at full throttle it reads 15.9V. Are these voltages within the acceptable values or is it overcharging? Other questions: Is there a voltage regulator on this model? How can I tell if there is a fuel shutoff solenoid installed? Thanks, Ken
