My portable welder has been in dry storage for at least 5 years without being used. In attempting to crank it I find that there is no fire to the plug. The engine is a Kohler, K241P (16 HP I think).
I replaced the plug, points, and condensor and still no fire.
I am trying to avoid taking it to a local small engine repair shop for two reasons: 1. Cost is always a factor, 2. Extended delay in getting it back.
Any suggestions out there as to what to do next to correct the problem. Will Rust forming on the flywheel prevent the magneto from firing?
Any help will be appreciated. The engine is not electric start.
