went out to the shop at 9;00 am and finished the boat trailer tongue and the wiring and pulled it out . pushed the 112 out of the corner and messed with it for a few hours and it would not start so i went fishing in the lake behind the house for a couple of hours . wasn't catching any fish so i went back to the 112 and for some reason it only has a spark when i let off the key . when your cranking the engine it has no spark and not sure why but it did start and i took it a few laps around the yard and then it died dead again . this thing needs a lot of TLC it has a very bad oil leak im not sure how im going to fix the hood yet the choke cable gas line are not in the proper place wires just ran every where ( AAHHHGGGG ) .

Gary, It could be a bad ignition switch not giving power to the coil in start mode. I have had that issue before.

it has a kohler , they told me when i picked it up that it had been rebuilt last year and it does run very good when i get it started . i kinda have my doubts about that, it is very dirty and there are many bolts that have never been taking off the engine .

Sometimes people call a simple overhaul or daily maintenance a rebuild, we do live in a close-minded society regarding all things mechanical nowadays, have ran into that problem many times.
Just a thought or two.

May be simply the ignition key switch bad, or may be the wrong one completely. Some universal key switches will cut off the ignition pole during cranking. For this type, you need a Ford (car) starter solenoid with 4 poles. 2 poles for the large battery cables, the one little pole for "start", and the 2nd little pole that sends juice to the coil during cranking.

I love that line " it was rebuilt last year" but you look at the engine and it looks like it was pulled up from the titanic <_< Next time someone says this and it looks bad, say "last year? you mean the last year Nixon was in office?"

And it's a chrome wing nut to boot, so it's a "custom rebuilt" engine! :bigrofl:

If this thing looks as bad as you are describing it, then it might just be a bad connection. Just disconnect the battery and start cleaning all connections! 90% of the time it's a bad connection versus a bad component, Just take your time and don't get stressed out thinking you need to replace the entire harness and a bunch of components. start with the easy 1st! (process of elimination) Good luck!

I was also thinking that it may be a bad ignition switch.
