    Although I have never tried this, As long as you tap into the top side closer to the push rod I see no reason it wouldn't work.
    I had the mechanical fuel pump go out on my Kohler Magnum 18 instead of paying $45.00 for a replacement and spending a day and a half to remove the body then remove the engine from the frame to replace it, I bought a $12.00 Briggs impulse pump. Removed the oil fill pipe, Drilled and tapped it and installed a hose fitting. Back up and running in less than a hour.

    It should work fine. The pump works off the crankcase pressure pulse from the movement of the piston. My 22hp has the pump driven off the #1 cylinder valve cover. It's nothing more than a tube inserted into a gromet.

    Post the model and spec. on the Kohler so I can take a look at it. What did you set the coil air gap at ?

    Post the numbers on the Briggs also just for the heck of it, I've got a idea !

    Here's a scan of the factory manual for the fuel pump location on my 40H777 (22hp.).

    Ok, On the Briggs I thought maybe I could find a different valve cover from another spec. number with the impulse tube already in it, But no luck and the twin that CCWKen posted is a different cover also. You can go to a Briggs dealer and purchase part# 694000 impulse hose and drill a hole in your cover to fit this hose and call it a day.

    As for your Kohler there isn't much to the ignition on it !
    Make sure your coil to flywheel air gap is set at .010 and you didn't say where you unplugged the kill wire but leave it off the coil and check it again with a screw driver in the wire instead of the plug, That would eliminate everything. If still no spark I would have to say you got a defective coil.

    Well I was a Auto Service Technician for over 12yrs. before getting into the lawn and garden service field, And right now I'm in the process of doing a body off frame up restoration and customizing my 74 chevy truck to enter in shows. So shoot with the question and I'll see what I can do.
    Btw, Glad to hear you got the Kohler going.
