16 hp brigs coil

Recommended Posts

Dad gave me his 7116 with a Briggs 16HP in it. He converted it to automotive coil 'cause it had a weak spark. The battery charger quit also, so more jerry rigggin there with a diode set-up from Radio Shack. I pulled the engine out and pulled the flywheel. All the magnuts are still in place and the stator has continuity. I hooked up the origanal coil, re-gaped it and turning the crank by hand it does have spark, not much though (didn't expect much). Does anybody have any specs on how much resistance the coil and stator should have? I think that the voltage regulator had been taken off also. Any thoughts there? Any help would be great! Thanks!! Ken

I'd try new points, gaped at .020 and a new condenser before I'd do much with the coil. Or, at least file them real clean and flat. Just the other night I was reminded to do it right when I did a quickie job on the points in the 3314, whick gave me weak spark, improvement from none, so I did a good job on them and now have nice blue spark.

Ken, I had charging problems on my 7016 with the under flywheel alternator. Mine was a duel circuit a/c d/c type and fount it to be a cheap replacement from Briggs. I remember thinking it would be a lot more. I think mine was less than $30. The Briggs repair book has good info on all the charging circuits. I bought my Briggs book 20 years ago and I am still looking up stuff in it. I also agree about the points.

Thanks for the info guys! Stopped at our local small engine place/Simplicity dealer today and priced new points and condencer, $28.00, OUCH! I do need condencer as mine is misssing. I think I'll try to clean up what I have as they don't really look that bad. They told me that to check my stator, I should run the engine at full throtle and I should have at least 20 volts AC from the output of the stator. I also found out that I need a voltage regulator, mine is missing. I posted a parts wanted ad. We'll see what hampens. Thanks again Ken

Acording to the local dealer the voltage regulator is a stand alone part. They had a chart of all the stators and related parts with part numbers and such. The regulator plugs into the plug on the two wires that come out of the stator. Ken

Here is a regulator reasonable priced. Pretty sure it is the one that you need as well. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-REGULATOR-FOR-BRIGGS-STRATTON-394890-691185_W0QQitemZ7728928088QQcategoryZ50371QQssPageNameZWD1VQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
