  6. My New 416-8

    The magneto, the gap between it and the flywheel should be .012"/.016" I added a couple files that were a big help to me. Section 8 of the service manual page 8.3 is your ticket.
  7. My New 416-8

    Mice love to chew on the magneto plug wires. I have replaced two because of them. My 414-8 and one on a 312-8. Make sure you set your gap correctly.
  8. M14 - What did I do.........

    In the future if you think you have a stuck piston, just pour a little transmission fluid in the cylinder and let it soak for a few days. Just a tip.
  9. M14 Tach & Hour Meter

    I did some 520 searches and the topic linked has some good info. Including the differences between the k series and M series firing cycle along with how a 520 tach was rigged up if someone wanted to go that route. Thanks again for all the input and help. I've been a long time reader and this is my first post for help.
  10. M14 Tach & Hour Meter

    Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. I did some more digging and I did find a Kohler tiny tach that will work with the M14 engine. However like oliver2-44 stated the battery is non replaceable. I may go with a mechanical hour meter and use a timing light to check rpm's. I wonder if the tach ACman mentioned would work on the M series since the ignition system is different from older style k series engines. any thoughts? I was thinking something like this if I just wanted to track hours. I just freshly rebuilt the engine so I want to start tracking hours and I'm wanting to make sure I have the governor set correctly and she how she runs under load. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CNI7I2Y/ref=s9_acsd_zgift_hd_bw_b1401V_c_x_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-5&pf_rd_r=VRGJW4S4TYMD1D63DAK4&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=58535d8f-9751-5564-9e0d-b2d7e1abea21&pf_rd_i=15729741
  11. M14 Tach & Hour Meter

    Has anyone had any luck adding an hour and tach meter to a Kohler M14 on a 414-8. I've done a little looking but haven't what I'm looking for.
