I had one with points but it was Aluminum Bore and it was a mess.Cylinders were both corroded up and pistons seized.That engine was out of an old Gilson/Wards 16 twin hydro.The engine I took out of a GTV-16 to put in the Gilson had the points cover but no points.The hole wasn't even drilled for the plunger.I have no idea why they put a cover on it.

 

 

I won't buy briggs "brand" coils any more.The cheap $20 ebay coils work.

 

 

You could try to Bake your coil sense it is trying to spark it more than likely has a crack in it and moisture got in it and is shorting it out internally.I'll look but there is a couple tutorials on the web about it.I baked the coil for my little Kubota Generator a couple years ago and it brang it back to life.They wanted $164 + shipping for a new one.I baked it at I think 200 for 45 minutes and coated the whole coil with silicon while it was still warm.

I used to do this with old Lawnboy coils.

Found it had it wrote down in the back of my little shop binder.

 

2 hours in the oven at 140-200 F and let it sit in the oven for another hour to cool down then cover with waterproofing such as silicon or some sort of waterproofing spray such as spray lacquer.

Today I am doing some thinking...

The Caterpillar started today, minimal fuss, drove it all around, and then it died... And would not restart. Hour later, still no go. Another hour passed and it started again with a little bit of fuss, only to die 50 feet later. Restarted it with moderate effort again and kept driving, next time it turned off was when I turned it off. So far every time it has started was when the fuel line was turned off before my electric pump... except for one time. It isn't making sense.

It currently is not sounding normal, all kinds of rough sounds and clatter. Going to let it cool off, check the oil, and see if it starts again....

Started and ran a couple more times today.... With the fuel line turned on, so I dunno what to do with it. However, I have listed this engine for sale or trade to someone with more patience.

Seriously. When it stops running did you check for Spark?

Sounds like its time for an inline Ignition tester to see if your losing spark......

I have an inline spark tester already. No I haven't checked when it won't restart if it has spark...
