B&S voltage regulator

Have a B&S 20G414 running Simplicity snowblower. Voltage regulator 698315 has output of 13.5 vdc at idle and 14.6+- vdc at full speed. Blowing 1156 single contact bulb at full power??
Any thoughts as to output of vr or rating on bulb?

tks js

Your voltage is fine. I suspect low-grade (chinese) bulbs and/or excessive vibration causing the bulbs to blow.
