Kohler web site has extensive down loadable pdf service manuals for their various engines. You will need to copy the entire Kohler's service manual for your particular engine. Don't be surprised if there are several different charging systems for the same engine.

Kohler made 6 different models of 18 HP engines. Can't be of further assistance without more information

The kolher was from a craftsman and it fit on the 582.Converted the driveshaft hook up to fit.followed the wiring,tested and can not find why it won't charge.

Edit: If the engine charging system worked before installation into your lawn tractor then the problem is more than likely in the manner in which it is wired up. I have a Kohler Command series engine. There are 6 or 7 wires from the engine to the ignition switch. Before I could put the engine in service I had to trace, label, and record each of the wires to their source. Then diagram/sketch switch terminals, test, record, and figure out how the ignition switch functioned at each switch terminal.

All of this was with the service manual's wiring diagram in hand.

Once I knew and understood where each wire went and it function and the switches function at each terminal - I could connect the engine wires to the switch. I did have to jumper two terminals on the switch to get everything to work properly.

The service manual for your engine will have wiring diagrams and diagnostic test for the charging system.

All switches do not function alike even is they have the same number of connection terminals. If you used the switch from the 582 it's internal switching function will more than likey not work correctly for the Kohler engine.
