Got a 25 horse...

Got a 25 horse kohler with miss fire problems.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Two weeks. I think it has something to do with the spark advance module

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is there a kit that will replace or bypass the spark advance module that is obsolete

Thank you. This engine was miss firing, running on one cylinder or the other at different times and different throttle positions. Spark tester showed spark at all times but probably not at the right time. Hope this is the cure.

Yes, common problem with this engine, and the two new coils, eliminating the spark advance nodule will fix it! Thanks!
