Have a Kohler K161 -RT 7 HP, Horizontal shaft with no spark. The
condenser seams OK to a volt meter test, but not sure about the HV
capability, and looks fairly new. The points look like new, and act
like a switch to a DVM. They are also clean, and not pitted.
The coil has some dark red sticky ooze leaking out of it. My guess is
that its breaking down, and shorting internally under the high
voltage. I get about 1 ohm on the primary, and about 3000 (3K) ohms on
the high tension winding. ((Not too sure what to expect for DC
Any one have any source for a coil, or any one wind there own magneto?
I can mic the wire gauge, but not sure of the magnet wire insulation
spec. Thought it can be potted in slow cure black potting, or varnish,
perhaps even pull a vacuum on it to purge the air. Any clue on turns
ratio, or wire type?
Anyway, any help is appreciated in advance:)
