17hp Kawasaki coil

I have a Great Dane Chariot Jr. mower with a 17hp Kawasaki engine. Model # is FH500V AS19. The coil on my mower is part # 21171-7007. When looking at buying a new coil, The replacement coil is part # 21171-7034. It says it replaces 21171-7001, 7007, and 7013. Is there a difference in these coils or are they all interchangeable?

In short, NO! Maybe! But the 7034 part should replace all the others.

Thanks BFHFixit, for your answer. Now the reason I asked. This is a twin cylinder engine. On this mowwer I lost fire at one plug. I changed plugs first. No luck. I then assumed, Coil. I unplugged the kill wires at the coils and still no fire from one coil. I purchased a new aftermarket coil and tried it. It fired but the fire was jumping through the boot at the plug and shorting out on the motor. Assuming I bought a bad coil I returned it and purchased another. Same thing happened. On both new coils, if i plugged in both kill wires the engine would not start at all, but with just one plugged up it would start but only run on the one cylinder. I did also change the coil I know works to the other cylinder and the engine ran on that side then. Thats why I asked about the coils. Looking at purchasing a used coil just to see if the aftermarket stuff is JUNK!

Electrically they are likely interchangeable. One universal model to fit others could have something such as slotted mounting holes to fit several applications where the original may not....
