Harder to find and expensive. First try cleaning the area with mags on flywheel, take off the sensor and carefully clean the metal that wheel passes by there, check for good wire connections, including corrosion, then set the gap on sensor to the flywheel. Not sure gap, but think a match book is close or sure some speck in the Kohler books. Make sure the mounting screws are also clean and spot where head touches unit and the block spot where the unit rests on. I would bet more on rust/corrosion than a bad sensor. You can change to points, but would need new coil/condensor, points unit and cover, gaskets for same. A points push pin and then you have to knock out the plug in the points pusher hole in block. Usually just knock that in and try to retreive thru oil fill or drain areas. It is just brass I think, maybe not? If steel a magnet should help fish it out. Never heard of way to pull plug out from outside.

Hi,
I would check ebay for used ones.
I have secured a spare used one. I was able to buy a new coil at a Kohler dealer($96)

once i get everything in working order i would like to paint it but not sure of the color? this was my fathers tractor, he passed away this year.he used it in the garden for 25 years though it hadnt been used in the last 7 years due to health issues. it means alot to me to get it going again to take up to our old ranch/hunting camp. thanks so much for the input               craig
