Positive side needs to have power from the battery through the ignition switch. Just to start the engine, you can hook directly to the positive battery terminal. Many Kohler engines run this type of ignition from the factory. I also have a 10 Hp B/S engine that had a bad magneto and I converted it to the battery-coil ignition. I have been running that engine without a magneto for over 20 years, and it is the easiest starting and best running B/S engine that I have.
