Would like to add led lights to my Sears 10/32 it had a 18 watt bulb that I can't get anymore so I got 2 18 watt led lights but will the motor generate enough amps to cover both new lights?

Probably not enough charge to run the 2, but I would try them and see how bright they are, then disconnect one of them and see how much different it is, make your decision after that.

I actually bought a nice battery 🔋 operated Craftsman light designed for snow blowers which works well for my Honda tracked machine.

I would check how many colts the lighting coil produces at idle and full throttle. I wanted to add LEDs to my mtd but found the Tecumseh made only 7 volts at 3600rpm. None of the LED lamps I found were rated for less then 10volts. I ended up scratching the idea, Though the typical 18watt amazon/eBay led work light would have likely worked fine just not for its rated lifetime.
