Fixin to see if this thing will run....can`t find gap setting on points in any of the numerous manuals I access. I`m guessin .012-015 ???. I also could use a good pic of the carb side to see how the throttle and choke cables hook up.....and check the governor and springs. It was all junk when I got it.

Almost forgot...`74 PK 2414...

Download the Kohler engine manual from our Manuals Section. The gao is in there but as you point out it is kinda hidden. I think the gap is 0.020" but there is a timing issue to address too. Good Luck, Rick

 

 

This is the one that you want: http://gardentractor...service-manual/ page 8.2

0.020" is the correct initial set-point and should be good enough to get the thing running..
