I had to jumpstart my CC 129, apparaently battery was low--didn't mow with it much during the summer, and it just sat) Would not continue to stay running without the jumper battery being connected. Why? ( I actually thought it would continued running even WITHOUT a batttery once it was jusmp started). ????

Your generator must not be working. You need some kind of DC power to keep it running. The 129 does not use a mag system.

You are out of electrons, no electrons means no spark. Your battery is flat and the generator not working. The K series Kohlers used on Cub Cadets have regular battery/point/condenser/coil ignition that requires an outside power source to work, like the aforementioned battery and or generator.

Your battery has zero voltage. Without some voltage the generator will not make power then you have no power to run ignition system

A generator will generator without a battery but it has to have a working voltage regulator or if older a cutout to work but no battery is needed. Alternators need some battery power to work.

I would put in another fully charged battery and take a volt meter and measure the charging voltage to your battery with the engine at 1/2 throttle or better. Measure across the battery terminals should see 14.5 volts with the engine at 1/2 throttle. If you only see 12 volts either then generator or the regulator is defective. Hal
