i found a OEM ignition module for a steal, see here http://www.psep.biz/...nition_coil.htm i just got it in the mail and ran to the garage and put it on. turn the key and she roared to life . im not sure what the difference is between OEM and aftermarket but the aftermarkey didnt work in 3 tries.

I am glad you got it going! I have an OEM coil still in the box on a self in my garage, just waiting to be used.

Also, your link does not work.

That's good news. I wonder what the problem was with all those other coils?

When you say "it roared to life", are you trying to tell me that you have internal combustion?

It can't be.

Gasoline internal combustion engines require an ignition source. This is usually delivered in the form of a spark....


DS, that is fantastic news! I just know you did a big dance around the garage. Jumping up & down like you just hit the lottery.
Very happy to hear your long struggle is over. Still driving me nuts why the aftermarket ones didn't. You might want to call the company you got thefrom and relate the story, they may not know that they aren't direct replacements.

Or you have a picky engine... ;)

i spoke with a kohler dealer and told him my problem and he was saying that the aftermarket ones may not have a diode or transistor that is needed . i think i will call TEW and let them know what is going on and what i did to fix the problem.
i did jump up and down and leave out a big war hoop when she fired up. i amso happy that it is running now. im gonna go out when i get home tomorrow from workand let it run for a while just to make sure it working right.

I'm so happy for you! I have been lurking along with this. But I didn't have any input, so I just watched.

this might be more suited to the gilson forum, but I have dropped a but load on mags for an old H16 with a briggs cast iron single 16.
points plunger was worn out and I wanted to change it over to a SSI. bought a SS "replacement coil"... no spark. $45
I then did some research and found out the magnets on the flywheel are reverse polarity
then I found the stock replacement $55 and a megafire II $35. after lots of wasted time, I finally got it to hit by reversing the leads on the mega fire. then the carb started pissing on the floor (while running), tried to shut it off by the switch and it kept running. pulled the wires off the mega fire and it died. I fixed the carb and tried to restart it, hits TDC and locks up tighter than hell. If I pull the plug wire, it cranks fine. So I pulled that one out of the rotation (last year). I just picked up a runner '71 gilson 16 gear tractor real cheap and plan on swapping motors. Might fix the old one when it isnt 106f and I have a higher tolerance of BS

any ideas on the firing problem, let me know.
thanks

i called TEW yesterday and let them know the problem i had with the 3rd ignition module. they said they was having the same problem with some tecumseh coils also. so the problem wasnt with my tractor but brand new coils being bad from the factory.
they are sending a tag so i can send both modules i have back for full refund.

Full refund! That's good news, but I don't think all that stress and frustration is refundable. Too bad you had to go through all this.

but the good thing is we know it wasnt my tractor and they found they have bad stock, which isnt there fault.

on the plus side i just ran it 25 min. ,shut it off for 10 min. and it fired right back up and ran another 20 min. now all that is left is to find 2 tires for the front and put it all back together.
