Hi I recently got an old charger 12 that had been sitting in a friends backyard for at least 20 years. The engine spins over and the starter works but it has no spark, I’ve been looking online for some solutions but I can’t seem to find any other charger 12s with my ignition setup. It seems to have a sort CDI box but I’m not sure. Does anybody know how this works or any tips on how to test for where the problem is ?

I need some help. I picked up a 1968 electro 12 (1-7235) that I'm assuming is an early model built with a leftover 67 engine because the engine patina matches the tractor and it has an external generator/starter instead of the magneto. It's a k301S-4712B. I bought it knowing that the engine turns freely and that it had no spark. Being 52 years old I figured it deserved some fresh ignition parts so I replaced the coil, condenser, points (cleaned and set to .020), spark plug (.035), and plug wire, and I still cannot get a spark at the plug or through my spark plug tester. It turns over okay and I've got 12 volts to the positive terminal on the coil. It's been many years since last worked on this type of ignition system and I'm stumped. I would appreciate any input/suggestions you might have. If it were something newer I'd suspect a safety switch but I can't see that this has any.
I picked up a wheel horse and I am having trouble finding the connection for this wire. I have no spark and have searched for the placement of this wire within the distance of its length...any ideas?...can't seem to paste the picture....

I have a late 90's 269H with the Kohler 17HP motor. After cutting for about 1 hour I turned it off, tried to start it about 10 minutes late and it would not crank. The dash lights turn on (oil, battery, parking brake), I can hear/feel the relay click but the starter will not turn.
All fuses checked All relays checked no broken/frayed wires
Solenoid will not engage when crossing the terminals with a screw driver and key switch in on position. Is this a defacto solenoid issue or do I need to check other things? Also, I am showing that the part number for the solenoid is: 52-435-02. i found one at http://www.milfordpower.com/R12130-Starter-Solenoid-Replaces-Kohler-52-435-02S-p/r12130.htm
Thanks in advance for any direction or advice.
Two of my 606's both have battery trays and electric start. Both with factory 606 tags. Now my question is why not just get a 656 from the dealer ship? Was it cheaper to get a 606 and upgrade the starter? Both have the proper key ignition switches as well.
