I have a 316 that has started having ignition problems... finally tracked it down to a bad coil, I'm having a hard time finding a replacement coil (especially for under $100) so I swapped a GM coil on it to try and get it running.

It ran for a while but now neither plug is producing spark but it does have 12 volts to the coil.

Anyone have any ideas? Oh, its an Onan
