Must replace coil but must install KIT#192931 (to ignition harness) to prevent voltage surge to coil when turning off ignition . the surge burns out the transistor in coil. kit will correct this surge.

>>Have you Replaced the Coil with a New One?
>>If No, then Replace the COil and your Problem will be Corrected. The Ign Mosule inside the Coil is Heating Up and Shorting Out. This Causes the No Fire when Hot Problem.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

I need to find free diagram for linkage hookup on a 10 HP Briggs & Stratton Snapper riding lawnmower

I would go to, click on the word 'forum' just to the right of the tractor wheel, and scroll down to the small engines and repair section. Inside 'stickies' is a directory of B&S service manuals.

Engine wont fire....

There should be 1 black wire that grounds the coil(s) for kill. Be sure this black wire is not grounded when switch is in on or start position. It will be connected to the coil(s) at the flywheel.
