Search for tickle test. It will tell you a lot.

What is a tickle test?

 

holding the charge wire in your fingers while spinning flywheel to see if the stator is sending juice to the module.

 

You can also check the resistance of the charge wire with a meter

There is an Ignition Charge Coil as part of the Stator under the flywheel.

It is very rare that they fail, but they have been damaged from cleaning and debris from loose flywheel magnets. It is possible that if the wrong type ignition key switch were installed and +12 Volts DC were applied by the kill switch wire instead of a ground that the Charge Coil may burn up. Before testing the Ignition Charge Coil, first disconnect the kill switch wire at the engine as above so it being grounded by the key switch will not give you miss leading information. To test this Ignition Charge Coil, measure the resistance between the engine block and the disconnected lead at the SSI. Figures 1-5, 20stator.jpg and 1-6, 20StatorCT .jpg show the 20 Amp Stator and associated circuit diagram for the 610906 SSI. The resistance of Ignition Charge Coil for the 610906 is Ohms 137 Ohms. The 10 Amp Stator for the 610748 is similar. You can also crank the engine and touch the terminal on the SSI and feel a tickle from the voltage pulses.

Doesn't every good GT get two test tickles before it leaves the factory?

Have not touched the Scracyard find but a fellow who was giving me some tires for a project showed me this. He bought new and now starter pooched. He's balking at the price of a starter so maybe he'll just go buy a new tractor.  Maybe I take it off his hands,,,help make room in his shed ya know...

If he is balking at the price of a starter for this just wait till he catches wind on what they want for them there new tractors......lol 

 

 

Though all my research I am finding that with these ignitions, its best to ditch the whole assembly and get a conversion kit when they fail. I have 3 hh120 engines right now but none of them are going back together with these old crispy components. I tried to fight the system and got one sparking after several hours of tinkering but after reading up on it , changed my mind and going with overnight solutions SSI conversion.
