I have 2 HH50 Tecumseh engines that both need new coils ( they are inside the flywheel)
I've replaced the condensers and the points are gaped to 20 thou.
I finally tested the coils with an ohm meter and the secondary was open.

Both engines spent a number of years in the open weather before I got them and I suspect that made to coil crack or somehow go bad.

I just finished repaling the oil seal on my MF 12 ( Vari Speed) and I now know much more about Redi-Seeves and oil seals than I ever wanted to know.
The GT forum is a great place for good info.

Thanks

Ahhh, one of the smaller ones. You should be able to find new old stock or replacement parts from one of our site supporters. Check the bottom of the forum, they have their own contact areas both there and links to their websites on the home page.
