Alternator

I am repowering a Craftsman mower that currently has a Dual Circuit alternator with an engine that has a regulated system.  The B&S publication shows splicing in new system, which looks straight forward.  However, I have read on-line that someone did a similar wiring configuration which caused groundfault issues.  Does anyone know if grounding the output of a voltage regulator causes any issues.  The wiring schematic for the mower shows that with the key in the "off" position that it does put this circuit to ground.

    Yes, I did get this to work.  I do not use lights on the mower, so I didn't worry about hooking them up.  I purchased the matching connector for the regulator wire and ran it straight to the battery side of the solenoid.  It has worked fine with no issues.

    Great. You don't happen to have a part number for what you used, do you?
