opposed twin briggs no spark

I got a duetz allis 616 yesterday. The po thought it was locked up but it was just the starter gear stuck to the fly wheel. I fixed that proablem and tried to start it. It fired and ran for 20 seconds and then died. I checked for spark and nothing the po had said it sputtered and died when it quit and then wouldnt crank over. I installed a new coil and set the air gap to .010" and installed a new flywheel key. I tried starting the tractor again and it started and ran for 2 minutes then died and no spark again. I disconnected the kill wire and still no spark. Does anyone have any ideas where to go next.

thanks Stephen

New coil eliminates a chewed sparkplug wire grounding...kill wire off eliminates. Ignition switch. Did you change the plug?? Cracked casing?

Coil was replaced with a brand new one and not one that was lying around ?. Sounds very similar to a coil issue to me.Are you sure the kill wire is not cracked or chewed?

The coil is new and the plugs are new as well as for the kill wire i have found no dammage to the wire only thing i can think of is the new coil is bad as well

Is it new enough coil to get warrantied/complained to the company? Defectives do happen sometimes. The kill wire often has a removable connection on the coil itself. Sometimes the kill wire segment from there to the chassis plug gets cracky from heat but won't show it. To totally rule it out, unplug at the coil. Then the problem can only truly be with the coil or the spark terminal.

Went out this morning and removed the kill wire at the coil itself insted of the connection on the shroud and the engine runs i found i pinched the wire during instalation. Thanks for the help.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
