I have a Wheelhorse Raider 14 with no spark and infant to try a new condenser before trying anything else. I have a brand new condenser for a 16 hp Briggs. Would this work on the 14 hp Kohler? I see no reason why it wouldn't but figured I better ask first.

Golly, gee I would HOPE you don't have an infant in your engine.

To rig it in, just make sure you have good ground, usually the huge diff is mounting. The mfd may be off a couple, but it should be close enough for a test.

I'm not so much worried about the mounting as it seems to be quite similar. I was more concerned about whether it would actually work with the Kohler. It just takes what's given and uses it. Doesn't make anything. I see no reason it shouldn't work.

Whatever you can mount in there will work. Heck, I once used a Tecumseh condenser in a Ford 302 v8 :)

The condensor is not your problem unless it's shorted out internally. I would suggest you read the manuals below and actually troubleshoot your problem in a logical fashion, rather than spending money on parts you likely will not need.
