Re: JD 170, 14hp Kawa - no spark
I had the same problem with my 170 a couple of years back ,,, it had to be either the igniter, or the coil ,which is bolted next to the flywheel. I went to the deere dealer ,the parts man looked up the history of the 2 parts, and discovered ,he had sold 7 coils and no igniters in the last 3 years. Neither parts can be returned,,so I went with the best odds and bought the coil and it fixed the problem. if that had not worked I would have bought both parts. (Your results may vary) talk to your parts dealer.. best of luck to you.
