?? Not sure of problem as stated.?? But with twin engine , to check cylinders, loosen the spark plug wires and with engine idling, remove one wire at a time, if the engine dies when one is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. With Briggs twin, it can be bad coil, or can have broken pushrod. If you are saying the engine will not die, the two kill wires have to be grounded by the keyswitch, when key is turned off. The coils are grounded and the fuel solenoid is de-energized at same moment for engine kill. ?? You can have wiring harness issue or a bad diode in the charging circuit, letting the coils get voltage feed back.
