    I have a Craftsman with a Kohler 16.5 HP "engine model CV16S" that will not start. The only time I am getting a spark is when the key is in the run position while the fly wheel is still spinning from trying to crank the mower. Thanks for the help.

    Did you take out the plug and be sure it was firing or did you just put a tester on it? Also be sure to make sure its gapped to 0.30.

    Yes, the plug was taken out. I will check the gap.
    Thanks for the input.
