ok... this guy has a 1556 with the 15hp tec engine witch i think has the solid state ignition, it has no spark so if the ignition system needs to be replaced how much would the parts be and are they hard to find? an do the hydos on them hold up or did they have problems? thanks sam

The Hydro's were pretty solid on the tubeframes. I was never a big fan of the Tecumseh engines though.
To answer your question, I think there are aftermarket ignition systems available for these.

(touch wood) my hydro are holding up good if you consider that mine was full of WATER i would prefer the Wisconsin over that tech and the coils are not cheap even used the coils sell for around 150 where i am
