tecumseh h30-35327n elec problems

Could someone please tell me how to test the coil on a 3 hp tecumseh engine. And, tell me where to get a manual with schematics? Thanks, Tvee

Just get a cheap in line spark tester at a Walmart or auto parts store, disconnect the kill wire from the coil and see what you have for a spark. No spark = bad coil.

Or you can do it cheaper by grounding a good spark plug and test it the same way. You need a bright blue spark.

Winding resistance values can change as the coil heats from service so one testing good cold can be a failing or failed coil.

I don't recall seeing any electrical schematic diagrams in my Briggs and Stratton repair manual, or anyplace else (my experience is shallow, though.
