    bought this scag..1 coil may be cutting out at times?..not sure yet. one was quite rusted so will try cleaning it up and re-setting gap tomorrow. I seem to recall these 25 command motors arn't to well liked..I know you guys have delt with them- what say you? ( price was very right). thanks on input. Gene

    Coil problems are common.

    As for the 25 Kohlers, there for a while they had issues with blowing head gaskets.
    That was their black eye, but only a certain amount of them were effected.

    I own a Scag w a 22 Koh. Replaced both coils during warranty 500hrs.
    no problems at 1500 hrs. If you have a 25 Koh must have a lot of hours.

    The new ones come w 23 koh. Ed
