Just out of curiosity, why would anyone want to put a condenser on the starter/generator. This was on the 147 I just bought. Didn't notice it 'till I got home or I would have questioned the PO about it.



If you can't find it, don't lose it.

Condensers are commonly put on generators for radio noise suppression. Maybe the PO liked to carry a radio when he was using it.

Talk about the condensors I had one PO who tried to get my 70 running with no condensor on the ignition. All we did was to add a condensor and clean the points and carb bowel plus flush the gas tank and its been running for 4 years now. It has a newer replacement 8hp kohler engine.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
