    thanks to every body for their info. I just got my points today, and am just about to fit them, but when checking round coil fixings and condenser i found out that the condenser was not connected to earth, problem being that the mounting points have been cracked and broken, the cowl needs some repair around this point , i will earth with a cable for now and either weld cowl or look for another one will let you know later on how i ggot on

    sorry for that. I had to rewire machine as per c141 wiring diagram, and wired direct without safety switches which were either broke or not working, i have now the cranking side of it sorted out ,now it is just the spark, the points are cra cked at the button in the point that makes the spark , the points and condenser have probably not been changed since this machine was made in 78 or 79 .it is a kohler k321 14hp engine on a c141 8 speed tractor
