Picked up a B&S twin Vanguard, model 303447. Has the key switch on the engine. There are two yellow wires from the alternator into a plug. Coming out of that plug those two go to the reg/rect, which is normal. BUT, there are two additional yellow wires out of the same plug that have been cut. Have no idea where they were to go to or what the engine was on originally. 16hp horizontal shaft. Any suggestions ? ?

They are direct from the alternator. Voltage might be a bit high for that. Don't know what the output is but wouldn't need two would they? The engine didn't come out of a tractor, with key start, etc. on the engine.

Don't sound like it is anything to be concerned about them as they won't be used for lights on the GT. Did grab a photo of the wires this morning.
Will cap them off and forget about them. Thanks for the help guys. SAM_1178.JPG
