Recommended Posts

Looking for advice or direction on changing coil on B-112. How big a job. Do you have to pull engine? I was thinking to change points and condenser also. Any help would greatly be appreciated....Scott

Scott, There is a nasty little trick you can do if you don't want to pull the engine. With the external points you can easily convert the engine to battery ignition with a coil and a non grounding ignition switch. The only hard part is removing and repalcing the switch. A bit of sheet metal has to be removed and reinstalled. Ron Carter

Hi Ron is right change it to bat. ign. better starting and you don't have to remove the engine. I have found the best coil that works is a Kohler for bat. ign on any 10-16 hp. it has a resister inside so you don,t have to wire one in put the coil on cyl. head & it won,t show when hood is on. Cal

Why do you want to change the coil?Does it jump a gap of over 1/4"? If so, then there's nothing wrong with it!Or does it act up/miss,etc. when it's hot? Now that's a sign of a defective coil.I believe;'if it ain't broke,,,DON'T fix it!'The replacement coils,points of today do NOT have the same quality as the old stuff,and I mean OEM not aftermarket,,,, that is really bad stuff!.IMHO.
