Hello MTF! I have a question for the Onan guys.. I have a twin cylinder onan, and I'm not getting spark. I don't have the motor on the tractor at the moment. I took the motor off because the starter was froze so just took it off to check everything out.. I just got the motor and tractor not sure if It was running previous to me buying it or not I just wanted the tractor. But I no its not getting spark now.. any help would be appreciated. It has new spark plugs.

it could be the coil or condensor
Remember onan's are like an auto the coil needs 12 volts to make a spark
WvBurban, you can test the resistance in the coil to see if at a minimum the coil is good. What engine is it? P218, B43, B48????
