All of a sudden my turf tiger while running is discharging the battery, I have recently replaced the electric clutch, runs fine with new battery but when it runs down it won't start and won't run with the blades engaged..(runs but is bogged down)..any ideals...I suppose the new clutch could be bad...I'm lost on this one...

I had a simular problem with a new battery. I cleaned the contacts (wire brush) on the cables and that solved the problem. It was getting something like 1 less volt thah it should have. It does't take much of a voltage drop to drain your battery.

Check the regulator terminals and connector.

Update, all terminals are clean and not melted, however the fuse does blow after some use for the volt meter (hence it stops charging) my quess is regulator is maybe heating up or shorting out and blowing the fuse...29 Kaw LC DFI motor,,,,,
