I would first try a new plug, then coil. If this is the original coil, it is not unlikely that is your problem. Check and see if a small engine shop near you might have a tester for a coil. That might help, you can also find a coil on ebay pretty cheap.

Hey Anon,
Cleaning a carb is not an easy undertaking,, there are several tiny passages, tiny jets, and the needle/seat assy, If you are not trained to know these.. you may not get the carb as clean as it needs to be... Install a new spark plug... a new air filter.. and get a qualified pro to clean and set the carb.

Big red honda 300cc 4 wheeler. Starter solonoid just clicks. Battery fully charged. solonoid has 2 wires from battery and a long double wire sealed into the solonoid. Question: How do you replace the...

if you can pull the rubber cover off the solenoid you will see two nuts that are the cable terminals, short across these with a screwdriver or similar(may make a spark) if this causes the starter to turn you probably need a solenoid. You could also try a multi meter or test light on the terminal to the starter, it should have power when you press the start button, if not , new solenoid. to change it disconnect the battery , undo the two cable nuts, and follow the other wire back to its connecter

Sometimes when i turn the car on it seem like something shocks everything out and when i installed the battery it sparks fire please help

First, make sure you replaced the battery with the terminals in the correct spot. Some batteries have opposite positive and negative ends. Red to red and black to black(neg). With a small car the biggest draw is the starter. If you can get everything going you can take it to Autozone, Murrays, or Reillys and they can lay a guage on the starter wire and tell you if the starter is going bad.
If you have anything on in the car when you reinstall your battery, their will be a spark of varying degrees.
Your underhood light will cause the battery to spark. So will the heater or A/C if the controls are not turned to OFF. The rear window defroster is a big drain and if the relay is stuck on you will get a big spark. The radio would spark less if it was on when the battery was reattached. Also the automatic headlights will cause a spark.

Since you started replacing the battery, I am guessing this problem may be causing a dead battery.
Unless the battery tests bad, a short will draw down about anything you put in the car until the short is fixed.
