Have a Deere garden tractor with a 17 horse Kawasaki under the hood. The engine is not charging the battery. Where do you think I should look first? I figure it's the stator, but I'm really clueless about charging systems that don't involve an alternator. Do you guys have any ideas? I'm only getting 12.8V at the battery, and voltage ain't going up when the engine running. I'd really rather not tear this thing apart no more than necessary.
