8HP K181 Electric Start. Run without battery.
Recently purchased TB Horse w/electric start 8HP Magnum Kohler K181. It has been run without a battery though the terminals have been taped to prevent contact. The harness is not unplugged. Should I assume damage to the alternator or is there a way to assess charging system health without a battery?

It won't hurt anything, you should have 14.5VDC from the + cable (red) to ground.
