1336 Pro charging system and LED

I have a early 2000s 1336 Pro with a 13hp Tecumseh Snowking. It has electric start and an onboard 12v tractor battery. Does this charging system have a built in rectifier to convert the AC to DC? I want to add an LED light, and I see the guys that have pull start with no DC system wiring in a rectifier and capacitors. Do I need to do that if I have the 12v battery on board?

There Should be a regulator, just outside of the fan housing.

But first, I recommend going to the Ariens site and D/L the Owners, Parts and Service manuals, using your model and serial numbers....
That will tell you Exactly what is there.

I'm pretty sure they have a rectifier and regulator for battery charging, but still feed the light and grips with straight AC.

Personally, when I converted a newer Pro to battery start, I fed all of the stator output through the regulator and put the lights, etc. on a switch running from the battery so they always get DC (and the lights don't dim if you idle down to talk to someone).
