Hi all, finally got the right coil modular from cummings, bought a new trigger rotor too, just in case. i went through a internet supplier and kept getting the wrong parts, this pain in the a## has lasted 3 months,finally got my money back and drove to the states yesterday to northeast cummins in buffalo, they had the parts on the shelf and now i am putting them back on, but i cant find the paper drawing of the wiring i did and i cant remember where they go, dont want to fudge up a $125 in parts, coil has large and small terminal, mod has red and black wire, one wire to condenser, one to the dash which i will assume goes to the key switch. this is an onan 16hp in a wheel horse 416-8, where do they go?  thanks all, john

I was thinking it would be in the link below "electrical service" which you have to download to open, there are some diagrams for two cyl. motors in it. I have some Onan diagrams but they are all Case related.

P.S. The one nbent posted is in that link

This is for a 260 Onan.It has a good wiring diagram in it .It looks like it is in the same family as your P-216
