Hi Guys,
I am new here, and from the UK.
I have an old mower which probably wont last much longer, and have been offered relatively cheaply a Yamaha YLM 346 which looking at it appears to be in excellent condition (and has the following extras that make it better than our current mower key start, rear roller, and self proppelled).

The problem being before comitting myself I had a search on the internet, and it would appear that many parts are not available now including the coil, now looking at it I find it hard to believe as it looks in such descent condition, but I guess I dont actually know how old it actually is and neither does the current owner.

My question is does anybody here know if a coil from another make of mower would do the job?

Many Thanks

:welcome: Hello Watson, and welcome to the forum!

I would think that something, even from a different manufacturer, will interchange. I'm not positive though :dunno:-

Hopefully, our wiser and more experienced will tune in with options.

Glad you found us and enjoy. Oh, and we love pictures if you have any to share...

Thanks Mark.
It would be good to get it working, as it does look to be a nice machine.

I dont have a picture of it - but have found a picture of the model on google to confirm what it looks like:

You have some very interesting mowers on your side of the pond.

Perhaps these folks could point you in the right direction.

Or maybe a salvage yard would have a working coil for you. Here in the States, ebay can be a good source for hard to find parts. 12 items came up for the Yamaha YLM 346 when I searched ebay UK. No coils, but at least one seller mentioned having spares.

I've always had pretty good luck finding parts by obtaining the manufacturers part number and googling that.

Hope that helps a bit. Good luck, let us know what you find.
