max the voltage reg should put out is 14 volt and no power should go to the coils it only runs the electic clutch and lights and charges battery
I'm at home now on a real keyboard, not a cellphone.... been a long day.
MowerDoc, you are quite correct. The only thing that battery had to do was turn the starter and hold in the electric clutch to engage the blades.
apparently, it would do that for 4 or 5 mowings, which is about 3 hrs/mowing.... so 12-15 hours of holding the clutch in per charge. Not too bad for such a small battery.
I will make sure it is working for sure, as my daughter wants driving lights installed so she can do her mowing after the sun goes down.
I put a pair of driving lights on the big Husqvarna Lawn tractor and what a difference that made.... we can mow after sun is gone, and the temps are 20-25 degrees cooler during the summer months.
I had always been wanting to find out why it did not charge, but one look at how the wiring harness was buried inside the frame on this thing totally made me change my mind.... I mean, they buried the harness inside the frame, and then put the damn thing together later.... I could not believe it.
It was made as to use it until it breaks, then throw it away, and get a new one....
Now, all of that stuff is outside the frame, my new harness will be in a loom, but will be clamped to the top side of the frame where I can get to it if ever needed again...
