I have an onan 18 that is not getting spark. It's off of a gt18 suburban. I had to disconnect a few wires to pull it off so is there something that has to be connected to power besides the starter to get spark? Like the gray wire on the coil or anything? Thanks a lot for any info. :thanku:

While its true the Onans used on Sears tractors have a 12V coil,some of the others had a magneto Lincwelders CCKA 16 HP Onan has a magneto ,it needs a battery only to spin it over,the magneto needs no outside current source to create spark....
