kohler 3 wire stator question

Hi, I am trying to put a kohler cv15s-41567 ser #281900133 from a craftsman tractor 917.271013 into a honda mzbf tractor. I'm having trouble with the wiring. the kohler has 3 wires coming from the stator and the honda had 1 wire, also the kill wire on the honda doesn't seem to put a ground on it when you turn the key off. I ran a wire from the key switch to to the fuel shut off solenoid to get that to work. My main problem is the stator wiring , converting from 3 wires to 1.

On the Kohler stator, if there is a green wire, this is for the stator brake and on many tractor set ups, it's not used. The other 2 wires: One will be DC voltage and it will most likely have diodes in line with it up towards the coil. The DC output will be 13-14VDC at full throttle and about 5Amps output. The other wire will be AC voltage and will carry at least 14VAC at full throttle.

The wires will most likely be red (dc voltage), yellow (ac voltage), and green (stator brake). The kill wire will be a different wire than what goes to the stator. If there is no green wire, the other wire will likely be white or black and it will be the kill wire.

If the wires do not resemble any of this, please let me know.
