I have a Snapper LT-16 that started running rough about a year after having it rebuilt.  After messing around for a little while (and getting "zapped") I figured out that I have a bad plug wire.  I believe these 2 cylinger Briggs have an assembly that I'll need to replaced the coil and plug wires, as you can't just replace a plug wire on them.  Any easy way to remove the rear cover to get to the coil?  Or am I going to have the drop the drive shaft?

Nope you are going to have to take the engine out and replace the coil.


Taking the engine out is simple.4 engine mount bolts and 2 drive shaft bolts,fuel line and unplug the PTO wire,charging system wire and coil kill wire.Choke and throttle cable also needs to be disconnected.After those simple to remove or unhook is will lift rite out.


I just got a Snapper LT16.Very well built machine.
