Hello, I bought a Jacobsen/homelite 16 hp with a Kohler K341 engine (same thing as a Ford lgt 165) for a parts tractor for my old Jac. But turns out it's in too good of shape to part out. Probably will sell it in spring. But anyhow. After running for awhile the battery goes dead. I tested the stator and it's putting out between 28 and 36V AC depending on trottle. My regulator 41 403 05A is only putting out between 10 and 12V DC. So seems simple, bad regulator. I ordered a 41 403 05, but no 0V DC output. Also tried a 41 403 09 and no output. I know these 2 regulators are good.
Any ideas? I'm checking the voltage directly off the regulator. B+ and ground. Since the replacement didn't have an A at the end, is it not compatible? Is it possible the stator is still the problem even though it is within specs with an output of 36V? Thanks
