I have a Kohler 241P welder/generator that has no spark from flywheel magneto.

The coil I believe is P/N 4714502-S and is available separately.  Can you tell me what is the correct method to check for coil continuity.  the model # is 46755D and the serial # is 11004740.

    You'll need a multimeter. Set it to resistance.

    According to what I've read online, the resistance of the secondary coil between ground and the plug wire should be between 5,000-20,000 Ohms (5-20 k ohms). 
     
    Ensure the magneto is properly gapped. In my experience, even with incorrect gap, you'll still receive some spark. It's pretty likely the coil has failed.
     
    EDIT: Make sure the kill wire is disconnected from the coil, if one exists. This will rule out any other reason that the coil is not producing spark.
