    i bought an air flo sander over the summer and the wiring harness was cut.i copied the wiring off one of my other sanders and all is good in cab controller works as it should!my question is what i believe might be the voltage regulator (small box near dipstick tube about 1.5 inches and square)has 3 wires wire #1 is red and i am pretty sure it goes to starter solenoid same post as positive battery cable.wire #2 is yellow and the same gauge as wire #1 travels up under the flywheel and (im trying not to take the flywheel off)seems to be intact im thinking it goes to the stator or some sort of alternator ?wire #3 is black and very skinny not nearly the same thickness as wires 1&2 and is bolted to the center of what i am assuming is the regulator and is only 3 inches long then its cut.on my other sander this skinny black #3 wire goes up under the flywheel also finally my question is........is #3 an aux ground i dont believe it is thick enough to be part of the charging circuit but i am unsure and cant find wiring diag online so if anyone can help please do thanks

    sounds like the throttle, the throttle for a gas powered spreader is a square black box for most models
