Please help. 250 AC Utility turns over but has no spark. We run this around the farm everyday. It was running fine when it was turned off. An hour later it wouldn't restart. It did start a few times since then and when it does it runs fine and but then you shut it off and then the same thing all over. The coil failed the resistance test so I got a new one but the new one gets hot enough to cook an egg on it. And I realize now that it has 12 volts at the coil all the time, which I'm pretty sure is not right. And the service manual I paid $15 for says to test the stator and the charging coil with the engine running. Which is a little hard WHEN IT WONT START. Hence my frustration. I have a good multimeter so any thoughts on how to track this down would be greatly appreciated. I did attempt to search the archives but couldnt find any thing useful with a valid link.
