    i bought a swenson v box , a few weeks ago , great deal,

    rebuilding it , rewiring it

    the wire that i believe they had hooked to charge the battery was a red wire..... coming off the engine (8hp briggs)

    there was also a black wire coming off of it , not used

    i went to reconnect it tgo the postive batt terminal, and noticed a small spark, which means its drawing power? i took out a test light, and both the black and red wires, when touched to Pos batt power make the tester light up. meaning its drawing power? and could run down the battery, it even heats up the wire making it very warm, which means it some how has a neg charge to it

    then after i started the motor, both wires, would make my tester light up?, using pos, & neg batt power ?-- as if this is AC , both wires?

    why would a DC Pos charging wire light up a test light , while the other end is hook up to either Pos, or negative?

    here is a wiring diagram, can anyone look at theres and tell me what the deal is,

    im think ing the charging system is bad, and some how shorting it self out, in a manor that gives it neg charge, until a certain rotaation point in fly wheel , to then give it a Pos charge, - almost acting as if its an AC circut

    the modle number for the enigne is 194707

    there is a red wire, and a black wire... the black is in a white connector, the red might have been at one time in the same connector, or possibly different one

    Yes , they come from under the fly wheel ,... i know these are charging system wires for sure... but cant figure out y a "DC wire" is giving me a signal like an AC?
