I've got an old Kohler engine, (not in a garden tractor). Not sure the age but its old for sure. Its an old blue one and its used on a grain auger. Its a k301 12 hp. It does not have battery powered ignition. It has the magneto/coil behind the flywheel. Heres the issue.The ignition fails annually, coils are expensive and getting harder to find. Is there an electronic ignition system that i can upgrade to? This auger does not get used very often, and would prefer not to have to add a battery and charging system to this thing, otherwise I would convert it to battery powered ignition.
Also I recently got the wrong magneto coil for it. How many different ones are there for a Kohler like this and how can I determine which one is the correct one? Can not find a number on the old one.
