Hi I need some help, maybe someone can answer a question for me. Last week one of our dixies went south with the battery, it happened fairly quick. What happened was the dixie started sputtering and idling real low when it was idling. When I shut it off and tried to start it again, it made that noise like you hear on a car with an alternator problem. Well we changed the battery on it and it worked fine for the next few days. Well today it did the same thing but the battery is still fairly new. Someone said maybe it isnt holding a charge. So my question is this, how do you know for sure and another thing, one of the guys we get our parts from was talking about this wire that is above the flywheel. Well i dont know much about engines and whatever so does anyhow know how to check this out? By the way, its a 60 inch 26 hp kohler engine. Only good thing is that tomorrow I will be using our new dixie, only has 21 hrs on it. Well any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
