Proper B80 coil bracket?

Recommended Posts

Could you folks please post a pic or two of your coil mount bracket on a Kohler 8?

Mine is on a vertical Mount beside the engine and it's vibrates quite a lot. Not sure if that should bug me too much but I always thought coils and vibration were not friends.....

Thanks

Here is a picture of mine on a 77 B80 it's horizontal mounted. Hope it helps.

It does help, and :thanks:  !!

Very nice tractor!   :thumbs:

Mine is turned vertically so the coil wire goes up and across.

I'll turn mine the way yours is, and route the wire through a clamp so the wire won't be rubbing on the engine top cover.

My concern is the bracket vibrates back and forth about a 1/4 inch or so at most.

I know at some point metal fatigue will take over and break it.

Maybe I can run a brace of some sort to the engine top....

You're welcome and thanks. I love this old girl but can take no credit for it's condition. I bought it this way, back in March. The guy was very good at what he did. He restored things for a hobby and then for a living. We are almost neighbors lol I live in NH. Good luck.
