Engine Charging System Setup

How do I set up the engine's charging system?

Briggs & Stratton supplies electrical components pertaining to the engine only. A basic schematic of our engine wired to a generic piece of equipment is available in our Engine/Alternator Replacement Guide. This guide also features an alternator identification section to assist you in determining the type of alternator installed on your model engine.


Alternator testing and troubleshooting procedures are located in a Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual available through the Repair Manuals section of our website.

For a more detailed schematic specific to your piece of equipment, your best source of information would be the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

For an alphabetical directory of manufacturers who sell or service Briggs & Stratton powered products for home, commercial, professional, or industrial use, please see our OEM Directory.
