Does not have a set of points, so that would be breakerless correct?

Yes and they are easily fried or just fail.  Look at the Kohler manual there are specific tests for breakerless.

More then likely fried. Can't get replacements anymore either correct?

You can get used parts from ebay but if thy work they are pricey.  Not too hard/expensive to convert to coil and points system....

More then likely it seems like I'll have to convert it. Get plunger, set of points, condenser, coil, and new ignition switch. Currently the ignition is only a 4 post as well

You should test the trigger and the coil...One or the other may still be OK.  if so selling it can help with your conversion cost.

If you do not want to test the coil and trigger would you sell them???

Looking to see who else has done conversion and if I need to replace stator as well

You can use the stator on there. Just have to isolate or remove wire going to breakerless ignition. My 69 Raider 12 since the early 80's.

Years back I purchased several nos triggers. I keep them only for the purest who wants a 100% original engine. All others I convert to the point system. Very reliable. Not that the triggers were bad. They weren’t. Just a high dollar part now.  Miller is a talented guy with good parts. If you don’t convert to points I would recommend you talk to him.

I have as complete breaker-less ignition set-up I removed from a 12 horse, didn't test anything, just replaced stator, flywheel, coil, & exciter. Do not know condition, I wanted 15 amp system, so I changed everything but blower shroud & spec number.    Ron

Okay so my thought is to leave that stator. Run those 2 wires from stator to rectifier, rewire machine to run points, condenser and coil. Just remove the coil and magneto from behind flywheel as well. Just need to remove the plug, install parts, gap points, rewire and done

      Sooo about three months ago I had a friend of a friend pass to me the most needy Wheel Horse GT14 Tractor I had ever seen, it was completely taken apart every single part had rust and two coats on oil paint one blue and one yellow. parts were missing and of course there was no labeling of parts or assembly there-of. All wiring, gauges, rectifiers were removed and non existent….. still the machine was calling to me to try and do the almost impossible...… My thanks to Aldon for parts and support and Kyle for Technical help and shoulder to cry on. ….  The only saving grace of the entire project is that the engine and tranny were indeed still good...… in fact the only remaining issue I have on the machine is that I cannot free-up the relief valve so that I can move the machine w/o power..... I think this might be stuck forever … but not the end of the world.

      Hi. I'm Chaplain Manny. I was wondering if you supply the decals for the gt14, the kohler k321 engine? 
      If you do, could you give me a quote, and tell me how long is the turn around?
      Thank you.
