Whats the main difference between a kt17 and a M18

The Kohler M18 will require a different ignition switch since it is Magnetron ignition. An ignition switch from a Simplicity with the Briggs cast iron block horizontal engine will work.

I switched my Allis 917 from a KT17 to an M18. Bought the kit from Al Eden. It was a lot simpler than trying to do it yourself.It involves a relay and moving a couple of wires around. All is good now. Good Luck. Or you could take the ign from the Kt17 and install it on the M18
