I know that I have seen it posted before, but how do you test a coile for of a Kt17 Kohler twin to see if it's good with a multi-meter?

I one I'm working on was wired backwards and I don't know if it was damaged because of that.

Connect an inline spark tester. Hook the battery up to the pos side. Tap the ground -> ground

Wet your fingers & hold the end of the wire while tapping the ground. :bigrofl:
Actually, my Dad used to check spark exactly that way! OUCH!

I think having kids is a lot more expensive than a $5 tool.
