I am working on a Techumseh HS50 5hp that has no spark. I do not know if it is points and condenserm or the coil. It has the coil and ponts on the insde of the flywheel. Can any one tell me what the resistance on the coil should be. The primary measures 7.9 ohms and the sec. measures 7900 ohms. I just want to be sure the coil is good before I spend $20 on new points and condenser.

$20 now for points/condenser? YEEOW! I didnt think it was that long since I bought tuneup parts for one of these engines, I used to do a bunch;
but before you do pull the flywheel and check the points, clean them and regap them and try again for spark. 90% of the time that's all it takes.
