Hello everyone

Need a little help on a TRA-12D electrical.

There is a small electrical box on the  front of the engine shroud. Three pin connector, in, with the hot side of the coil single red wire out. Wires in are black, blue, yellow 

Engine ran fine then just stopped.

Gas good.

No spark at plug: used new plug, no spark

Coil is good,

I need to know what it is called it so I may find another.

Really appreciate any help.


12:32pm Ran the wiring back and then checked the connectors themselves. Wire had pulled loose.

Thank's anyway,

I have a Bolens 1256 with a TRA 12D, the box is the solid state ignition. Check to see if the minus side of the ignition coil is grounded with the ignition switch on. That wire should come from the switch that kills the engine by removing the ground from the coil.
