battery not charging at all

I have a Craftsman lawn tractor model 917.258681 with a Kohler Magnum engine, 19.5HP twin. My volt meter shows absolutely no charge going to the battery. I have no schematic for the electrical system on this tractor, but if it is like many other mowers, I would look for a rectifier between the engine and the battery, but just don't know where to start looking for it since in the past I have also seen the rectifier in line with wires and covered with shrink tube, which makes it almost impossible to see or find.

I would much appreciate any help.

could you also tell me where I can find a schematic and parts manual for this tractor?

Soluzione Prescelta

The part you are looking for is under the engine cover. Should be 4 or 5 bolts to take the cover off. The part should have a wire or two coming out of it. It's small and one side of it looks like it has been filled with hot glue. That part takes the spark from the electromagnet and feeds a charge to the battery. The part should be held on the side of the engine with one bolt.
