Hi,

Yes it should have spark, as long as the ignition switch is turned on. You will have to check the coil & magneto circuit if there is no spark.


Best wishes,
Graeme.

Check for a bad ground - causes weird readings especially when using a digital meter. use a cheap analog meter that draws a bit of current. digital meters can give you confusing readings like showing voltage when there's nothing readable on an analog meter.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
