Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. So even after replacing the coil it looses spark to the plug once it gets hot ?

Expert:  Briggs-Fan replied 1 year ago.

It should get spark anytime the engine is turned over. Do you have access to a compression tester ? I would check the compression before starting and right after it dies

Also when you can , can you get the info off your engine , model family. Etc . I know cub uses kohler engines but is it a cv15s etc ?
