I asked this in the small engine section too, but I am just trying to hedge my bets here too.
I am restoring a Power King 1612, it has the Kohler 12 hp (K301s). The engine starts and runs fine, but the points have to be tended to from time to time. I was just wondering if there was a way to convert from points to solid state, or electronic ignition.
I am no expert, (but getting better thanks to this site). I can usually fix what breaks and over maintain my equipment, but when it comes to modifications I am a little apprehensive.
I tried to do a search on Google, but most of what I found was for automotive, not 4 cycle. I figured this is not the first time someone has asked, or tried this, but again, not to good at finding a match to my question on this site. Any help, or pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.:thanku:
I think you need the correct stator with the extra wire,flywheel with the button,coil,pickup coil or trigger and a different ignition switch.I am not to sure if all engines allow for the attachment of the pickup coil.
