Does it have spark on both sides? If it does, pull the rocker cover and check the pushrods on the dead cylinder.
Fuel problem would affect both cylinders.
Briggs does not rate their coils by ohms. Test only for spark!
Yes one fuel pump, and carb feeds both cylinders.
I;m here, did you check the pushrod on the left side?
Kill wires go through a set of diodes, but when diode is bad, you have no spark on the dead cylinder, do you have spark on the left side?
If no spark, pull the kill wires on both coils, and test run. If it works, the diode harness needs to be replaced.
Yes, there is a harness that goes to each coil,in the harness is the two diodes. A diode is an electrical check valve, keeps v=current only flowing in one direction.
they just fail.
No, just one for both
One diode is good. and it is lets the one coil fire.
pull the kill wires off the two coils and see if it runs on both cylinders.
The fuel solenoid will let engine kill.
