I have been reading posts and am impressed with the knowledge. I just got an H-14 with a rototiller, a mower, and a snow caster. This is my first garden tractor and I have a few questions. So far all I have had to do was replace shear pin(s). Here is one of my first questions. The tractor does not charge the battery (actually batteries as it is hooked up now). The previous owner replaced the rectifier. The engine is the Tecumseh HH-140. He said there were 20 volts across the stator wires. From what I have read, that seems to indicate the issue is the stator. 

 

I am not planning on fixing the stator until the spring with warmer weather as it runs now. I want to do my homework. How do I know if it is 20 or 10 amp? For some reason after reading some of the manuals online, I thought it ought to be 20 amp. However, the ammeter is marked for plus and minus 15 amps. The other reason I question which one  is due to the stator connector. The connector has the wires in a T shape. When I look at them for sale on eBay I see 20 amp with the three wires in a single line. I see the 10 amp stators with the T-shape connector. The serial number of the tractor is over 300000 if that helps. 

 

I need to spend some time on the wiring this spring. The switch was replaced with an Oregon one at some point and I want to verify it will work properly. . 

 

I have had fun with the snow caster so far. The traction control with chains seems to work fairly well. I think it would be better with weights (and 2 link chains in place of the 4 link) especially when I lift the snow caster.  The other snow caster issue is there is no bracket to hold the chute crank. It runs through a hole in the muffler support. Is there a drawing or part number for it. The snow caster is 18538

Welcome to GTT. You picked a great tractor to start with. Add wheel weights for better traction. Check our Manuals Section for the answers to your questions too. I think there is a good manual for the Tecumseh engine that you have. There are also lots of Bolens manuals. Good Luck, Rick

The ignition switch was special and possibly why your seeing some wire issues if someone swapped out the OEM one to make something work.

A 10 amp stator has three pins on the plug two side by side and one in the middle above them like a triangle. The 20 amp has three pins on the plug all side by side in a row.

Thanks for all the replies. From the description above, it has a 10 amp stator. I will post some pictures soon. 

 

A 10 amp stator has three pins on the plug two side by side and one in the middle above them like a triangle. The 20 amp has three pins on the plug all side by side in a row.

The two side by side with the middle above is what I tried to describe a "T-shaped". So it sounds like the stator is 10 AMP.
