The 1985 model used a 3amp rectified but unregulated system to charge the battery and power the ignition and a 2nd stator that supplied unregulated AC current to the lights only.

how did the wheelhorse numbering system work? what does 314-8 mean. i know that 14 means 14 hp, and that 8 means the transaxle has a self contained creeper gear, but what does the 3 or 4 mean(314, 414)?
Caseguy can fill in the blanks here, as can several others... But the first number is the series. After TORO took them over, it got more confusing... But my understanding pre TORO is that the 300 series went to 12 hp, the 400's were 12 to 16. After TORO there was some overlap ... Thus the 14 hp 300 series.
Ok, someone correct me LOL

You should be checking the voltage between a lead and the chassis ground for each stator winding remembering one is AC and one is DC and depending if you are taking a reading before or after the diode in the charging circuit. AC before the diode and DC after it.
