Anyone with Briggs 342cc and heated handgrips and light?

Looking for the engine model number and type. I have a Toro 1128 that came with factory light and I added heated grips. I had to change the alternator but the light still dims a little. So not sure my dealer sold me the correct alt. If you have this combination in a Ariens (Heated grips and light with Briggs 342cc) could I get the engine model from you and type? it should be stamped on the side of the valve cover. Thanks.

On my old 342cc Briggs I had on my "Husky" I remember the light dimming when I turned the handwarmers on.

Thank you sir! My dealer sold me 696742 which is a dual circuit (did not need AC). It is only rated for 2-4 amps DC. I am thinking my light should not dim if I had the correct alt. I had an Ariens Deluxe 28 that I added the Ariens heated grip kit and the light did not diim while running the heated grips. You are running the same alt that my Ariens 250cc had. I will research and see if this will work with my flywheel. Do you know what flywheel you have? Thanks.

No, I don't know anything about the flywheel. I do have the parts manual if you want me to send a copy to you. I tried to upload it but it exceeds the size limitation.

If that light is halogen you could run it off the AC output, and leave the
DC for the grips. Or stick a full wave bridge rectifier and a couple of capacitors on the AC output and turn it into DC if you have LED lighting

Work fascinates me.

I found a brand new 797090 on Ebay for $15 plus free shipping so I snagged it. I will give it a try. Interesting info about using the AC if it is a halogen bulb. I am not sure if it is or not but worth checking. Here is what was in it and what I replaced it with:





I cut the DC lead off the original and spliced it on the new alternator so I could keep the same harness connector. I taped off the AC lead. On the old one, black was DC. On the new one Red is DC and Black is AC. They both have the same diode part number built into the lead as shown in the pics.

I wonder if you could cut off the diodes and feed both lines to a ac/dc rectifier(like from the LED thread). Seems like the one your not going to use would have more amps. More amps you could add some Led lighting.
