I will soon be working on a Huskee 18.5 hp riding mower. It currently has charging issues, and I figured I would post here first, to see if anyone has any ideas to what may be the problem. There are a lot of intelligent people here, so I am confident I will find a solution before I get the mower in my garage. The ampmeter is currently showing only 5 volts while the mower is running. I was told the battery is one season old, but has been drained due to not being charged from mower. Any thoughts are welcome.

Hello, If you could post the model type and code and serial#. The test you will need to do will depend on what alternator/stator you have. Also what color wire and cap coming from underneath the flywheel. And what does the regulator look like.
Down load this chart and it will help you ID your stuff:

With that info I'll give you a test for that.

B&S I//C 18.5 HP Twin II. As far as alternator, regulator. The mower is not in my garage as of yet, so I haven't been able to start dis-assembly.

There are @ 5 different alt listed for that engine. If you have the model # for the mower itself it might help narrow it but the best way is to also see how many wires, what color they are and what does the connector look like (color) as well as the regulator. These will be the wires coming from under the flywheel usually by the starter. That pdf I gave you can also help you ID it as well. Once you have that info there is a way of testing those parts with a multimeter.

Hello Five Points. The mower model# is13AS698H131. The wires coming from underneath the flywheel are,1red,1black, with a white connector. Not sure about the regulator, as I am going off of pictures sent to me. You have already been a huge help. I will research the regulator asap.

I believe you have a Dual Circuit Alternator. I'll Put something together for you here shortly.

This PDF should take you through the testing procedure for the alternator and regulator for that engine providing the wires are correct.

View attachment Briggs Alt troubleshoot Dual Circuit.pdf

Remember, other issues could be as simple as a broken wire, bad connection, short in the ignition switch or even a bad battery.

Thanks for the PDF link, Five Points. I hope to tackle this mower this weekend. I will definitely get back to you with the results, as you have been such a big help. I knew you would provide some insight before I began this project. Thanks again.
