Question about Lawn Mowers
I have no spark
Take the coil off clean with sand paper then get a piece of cardboard from a cereal box or cigarette box, put the piece of cardboard in between the coil and the magnetic strip on the flywheel ''believe it or not it is the perfect gap'' 'let the magnet pull the two together'' then tighten the coil down. if still no spark get a new coil.

Check your flywheel brake assembly (if on a pushmower) to see if your kill wire is loose or grounding out. Horizontal engines also have a kill wire connected.to the top of the coil. It could be grounding.

The float needle and seat are leaking and not shutting off the fuel when carb bowl if full. It then flows down the intake into the cylinder, past the rings and into the crankcase. Have the needle and pressed-in brass seat replaced. Could save yourself some money if you removed the carb yourself and took it in.

First you could make sure you have spark. Take the plug out and then plug it into the black wire. Set the end of the spark plug near the frame of the lawn mower. Pull the cord one time to see if there is an arc from the plug to the mower. If you have spark, I would put the plug back in. Before putting the plug back in I would spray a little bit of starting fluid. See if it will fire up with the starting fluid in there. If you have a true good spark, it should fire up. This may be enough to get some gas going in there as long as you have the lines hooked up correctly.

A range of strip-down manuals for all Briggs & Stratton engines is avalable - I got mine from Amazon, but you can get them directly from Briggs & Stratton via their web site. They have a look-up system by model series, which ensures you end up with the manual that covers your engine.
