Magnet broke off inside of flywheel!
A Kohler CV 12.5hp
The electrical system had a small draw that was killing the battery. Traced it back to the voltage regulator. When voltage regulator was unplugged, the draw would go away. When the voltage regulator is plugged in, it makes the connection between the wire harness and the wires going up under the flywheel to the alternator.
There are 6 magnets under the flywheel for the alternator.
Discovered one magnet was dislodged from the flywheel.
1. Will a dislodged magnet create a draw by closing the airgap?
2. Will the charging system still work with one of the six missing?
3. Will the engine vibrate from the flywheel being out of balance?
4. Will a dislodged magnet cause the engine to die while running for no apparent reason?
