Help Coil-Carb B&S 326431

Recommended Posts

Purchased spare B&S model 326431-0190-01-7703041 16 hp from club member. Was converted to kohler coil. Motor had hard cold starting and charging system trouble. I want to bench test motor before putting it in a tractor. I have a B&S engine manual coming on Friday, have not worked on coil ignition or generators for some time and then only on cars and trucks. Removed coil to re-mount and found "use with primary resistance wire or external resistor" does this mean it is not a kohler type coil? Also when converting to battery ignition do you keep the small condenser mounted with the points in the point box and add a auto condenser to the coil?? Carb issues, the motor has a idle adjustment on carb, pinned to the throttle shaft and has lots of play on the adjuster, and some in the shaft. Do I rebuild the carb or try J-B weld and re-drill the adjustment part, don't know the proper name for it. Stan

One condenser only!! You can use the original one that is mounted with the points, as I did. That is not a Kohler coil for this type ignition. It will work, but the points will burn very quickly, since the voltage thru them is higher without the resistor. You can add a Chrysler ballast resistor in line with the power lead to the coil. Post a picture of the carb so that we can understand the adjuster problem. It is not clear to me.

The coil did not have a stock bracket, one other post said the coil should have a coil bracket to hold it tight, I may put a new coil on and not take a chance. Hope the photo helps. Stan

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct
