The issue in GetHuman-jsreed's own words
Vanguard *******-****-A* on Woods Mower. Flywheel sheared * teeth during start. I think the engine kicked back - not sure. replaced flywheel with new. Thought it was direct replacement, came with front cover, screen, looked like **C in your drawing for this model. Flywheel had M****** and *I ** B*B painted on it. Can't tell whether it is small or large magnets, since the inside magnets are covered with a ring. After installation, the generator coils all burned up during the first mowing. Battery was fully charged before the mowing. Don't know what to purchase to remedy this problem. Please help with part numbers of generator coil, regulator, and, if needed again, flywheel.
