Since I have fried the harness (see my post below) Can I take the wires off the generator and test the gen with my volt meter to see if the gen is still working? Or will this cause further damage? Thanks again---Rob

Remove the wire and test the generator.
There's only one way to find out if it's working.
If it is or isn't, you certainly are not going to damage anything.
Good luck.

...what you pay for it, BUT, take the generator and the cutout (or regulator, depending on what it's got) to your local auto parts store that will test it. Do this after you get the new harness ordered. Get the new harness installed in its original location and if you don't understand electricity in this simple tractor, HIRE IT DONE. Unless you want to spend half the summer throwin' parts in it and wondering now what the heck is wrong.

Now if all you need is a diagram to work from, well, there are plenty of them for the asking. That's the free advice from... duey.

the auto parts store has a table top tester with a 2 HP engine the rebuilder will have a tester with a 5-10 HP engine. Find a rebuilder, not a kid that can punch up numbers on a computer. Although, you can test it yourself with jumper cables and a battery. Hot to Hot, Ground to Ground with No belt on it. Tie the field winding to Ground, and a good generator will spin just like a motor
