Kind of vague on the electrical problem you are having. I am having a electrical problem with my log splitter engine too. But I know it is some thing to do with the coil.

Welcome!

When you say electrical trouble, what are the symptoms?

What voltage reading do you get at the battery? Connections tight and clean?

Strange never heard of a battery being right at 12V. Usually a real good battery will be over 12 around 13.7. A old battery in not so good a shape and will be under 12V.

 

If you know how to read one here is the wiring diagram

Is for a S16 but similar for a GT17.
