Correct on the briggs but there is a breaker available they used them on the boxxer 421 and 427 it's mounted on the frame below the regulator right side. It was silver about 1/2 wide 1 inch or so long has a small black button that is a manual reset.

So I took it to a local machine shop, they are going to completely disconnect the charging system and mount a 40 Amp belt driven alternator on it, they measured the amps being pulled by the kerosene heat exchanger and it is pulling 13 amps the kohler charging system is only rated to produce 10 amps so that creates a huge issue, also the reason they are completely disconnecting the charging system is so the 40 amp alternator doesn't keep frying up the existing voltage regulator
All that cost me about 350 bucks think it's a smart move ?
Thats the best thing you can do for it. Ditch that rectifier. You will never look back.
