Charging system question...Craftsman LT1000

Hello,



The battery doesn't seem to be holding a charge that well. The amp gauge reads at a negative discharge ( at idle ) and smack dab at 12 o'clock at full run speed. I back probed the electrical connector and am getting 30 VAC at full run speed. However, when connecting the probes of a voltmeter to the battery and letting the engine run at full run speed...DC voltage climbs to about 12.8 volts and that's it.



Shouldn't I be receiving a voltage reading of 14 volts or a bit higher? Also, I do not see a voltage regulator anywhere on the engine. Are some mowers not equipped with a voltage regulator, or am I simply missing where it is housed?



I appreciate your thoughts...thank you!
