1614 spark issues
Ive been having a heck of a time trying to diagnose and repair my 14 hp Kohler K321, with no spark. I have the breakerless ignition and thought my trigger module had gone south after testing the diodes so I replaced it and still no spark. I can't find anything in my Kohler manual about testing the ignition windings in the stator. I did put my multimeter on the stator terminal on the module and cranked the engine and got a reading of around 16-18 volts, not sure if I'm doing that correctly. I'll admit I'm electronically challenged and the digital multimeter tends to confound me as much as it helps me. I'm seriously considering just converting the ignition over to breaker points and being done with it. Does anyone have any insight into testing the stator, and are the ignition windings different from the alternator windings? I don't want to go to the trouble of converting to points and later find out my alternator won't charge my battery and have to tear it all back apart.
