Which wire is for is for the charging output? Thank you
A: According to the wiring diagram in the owner's manual, they seem to be charging the starting battery from the main cable which runs to the starter, via wiring in the start switching assembly. There is a fused link which shunts the charge current back to that terminal. When the fuse blows, the motor can still be started, but the battery will not charge.
