Have a gravely 10a with electronic ignition and Kohler engine (I bought it used 35 years ago-great machine). Started being hard to start but eventually would. Replaced plug and plug wire - starts one week. Next week - no start again - No spark. Replaced coil. Still no spark. Pulled all connectors I could find and re-seated. Not sure how to diagnose further with electronic ignition. Any ideas?

:howdy: Welcome to MLF. 35 years+...should have points and condenser in addition to the coil. I would clean and set the points, possibly replace condenser.

My '74 Suburban with an Onan 16 horse acted like it didn't want to start some times, and I traced it down to the connection at the starter that had gotten loose.
