    Lesson learned (again) – when all else fails, read the directions!! Like in, “TOP” on the magneto cam means UP!!!

    My old supervisor at work used to tell all his guys, “READ THE DESTRUCTIONS!!” (He said it that way on purpose….)

    The 172523 OMC ignition kit has different condensers and it meant for the larger hp engines like yours….. Just a thought….

    That’s Interesting. The condensors in that kit are a different capacitance? Or longer wires? Both? I see that the other kit 172522 is said to be for 3-40HP as well. Maybe that’s a vendor error?

    I’m pretty sure the lead length is the same, the capacitance is different though…. And yes, there is some misinformation on some of the sites concerning usage….The 172522 kit is used up to 15hp, the 172523 kit was used on the 18-40hp models…. The different condensers were used to resolve an intermittent miss problem when the 172522 kit condensers were used on the larger engines….
