New to the forum and need some help. Just purchased a Bolens 1668 Eliminator with 16 hp briggs & stratton that is experiencing a charging problem. After about 2 hours of mowing the battery will be dead when trying to restart. Would like to know what tests I can do to the stator, voltage regulator,etc? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome :wave:

Here is the service/repair manual for your series of Bolens. Click Here The file is big so allow time to load...

First off I'll start with some basic questions,
Are you sure the battery is good?
second, when the tractor is running does the ammeter show its charging?
You can scroll down to page 35 of the manual to view the testing methods of the electrical system.

Thanks for the good information. The battery is new and the ammeter does not show it charging.

Thanks again.
