Here is a picture of it before cleaning or being taken off the trailer and a quick update. It is definitely not charging. Sometimes I over think things and then I realized, just disconnect the battery while it is running. As soon as the battery was disconnected, it shut off like you hit the switch. I am going to fab up puller and take the flywheel off today. I will keep you posted. Again, thanks for the help.

I pulled the flywheel and the stator plug was a mess. One of the pins was pushed back and the wires were bare, frayed, shorting each other out, and had a number of broken strands. I hated to do it but I had to cut out the connectors for the rectifier and stator. The stator plug is on the left. I was shocked the stator and rectifier were not hurt by the shorting wires.
Glad we can help! When you figure out what's wrong, be sure to let us know what it was.

I soldered in new connectors, put new wire loom on it, and sprayed it with plastic coat. I put it back together and one of the good things was I was able to clean up the engine a little.
And my favorite picture, now with the lights on.................

What size deck is on there?
It is a 50 inch and pretty sound. However, now I have PTO problem and, at the risk of burning you guys out, I need some advice. Since it is in a different direction, I will pick it up in a new thread.
