Question about Briggs Stratton H7159 & Stratton® 5500, 10 HP Generator
How can I check the oil level switch? The engine has plenty of oil in it but there is no fire going to the plug. I have pulled the plug and grounded it while cranking the engine and there is not fire between the plug gap.
Also does this engine have points and condensor under the flywheel or does it use an electronic inigition module? If it uses a module, where is it mounted and how can you check and see if it is working?
Hi disconect all wires going to the coil that feeds the plug ( oil switch & stop switch.
With plug grounded turn engine over to see does the plug spark.
If not try again with new plug.
If it still does not spark replace the coil unit as it either has a faulty coil lead or coil itself is faulty.
