I contacted Sears for a direct replacement, and this is what they sent me... http://www.searspart...mpaign=pd-oc-nb

 

That explains a lot. Before you get to far into it you may want to check the crank dia and also the bolt fitting from the motor they sent you to the one you have. Briggs shows two different cranks for the engine.

If you don't care about the lights you can just leave the orange wire disconnected.

 

If you want the lights to work (better than factory) put a 7.5A fuse in the orange wire and connect it to the hot post of the solenoid, the same terminal that connects to the battery.

Dang, ran into a snag! The new motor was damaged in shipment (See attached picture, cracked engine cover).  I called sears and they are sending out a new one.  I could install this one and when the new one comes in just swap the cover......Although Im not sure if what caused the engine cover to crack did more damage that I cannot see......

Perfect!  Thats what I'm going to do!.  

 

So I think I have determined plugging the red wire from the new engine voltage regulator into the where the old engine red wire (That came from the Stator) is the way to go, and the carb solenoid is plug and play, and now you just solved my headlight plug issue.

 

Take a look back in the post to see the red wire I'm talking about.

Yes, plug the tractor power that used to go to the stator leg with the diode (red, I think it was) to the red output from the new regulator/rectifier.

The regulator/rectifier does the same job as the diode did on your old engine, only better.
