    I have a walker mower that cut off as I was taking it off the trailor, I can crank it and it will run anywhere from a second to eight seconds, but will not stay cranked. It has a koeler 25hp solid state ignition, I pulled a plug and it appears that there is not a spark while cranking. Any thoughts as to what the problem could be? The Walker dealer says he is backlogged and can not look at it for three weeks.

    TIA

    I replaced the plugs already, also have checked that gas and air are there, am missing spark at the plug. There is a encapsulated modual sitting on top of the right drive that has a PC board edge connector extruding from it with four land lines that were corroded pretty bad, am courious as to its function, it is mounted on top of a relay modual. I suspect that the smart spark modual is defective, but need to know how to check it.
