I have a PK with KT 17 twin. Fella delivered it to me with points cover off of it. He gave me what looks like the usual cover for kohlers. There is big wire out to coil and a notch in cover with little rubber insulater that slips into the corner of it. BUT, the condensor is outside the cover and no place in the rubber for second wire to pass thru. I made another notch in side of cover for that wire. I put cover on and wouldn't run. Pulled it off again and will run. I'm thinking the wire inside is pushing on cover, or wrong set of points and hitting cover and holding open, or that is not orig type cover and maybe that engine used a taller one??? Anyone with a KT 17 in some brand that could look at it and see if bigger than a singles cover or two wire holes and such. AND, oil sprays out of one of the scew holes with cover off and running.Heh!
