Welcome to the forums.

Your model number doesn't appear to be complete based on the Craftsman service site.

The following is a link to your engine and parts.
Part # 474 is the alternator winding and part # 877 is the rectifier diode.
The diode needs to be checked first with an ohmmeter set to the diode setting.

If you click on "full size" under the diagram.... it will open in a new page. Now click on that diagram for an expanded view. You can move around the page with the arrow buttons or the cursor.
