Hi

I suppose is 4 stroke engine.Before adjusting the breaker points gap at .020 check if the breaker points are burned.Also check the condenser(change it).Change the spark plug with a new one with the same heat range.The plug gap is .030.

Why don't I get a spark after replacing the coil on my Redmax grass cutter model TR2301S that is less than 3 years old.?


The gap between the coil and the magnets on the flywheel is critical. It is very close and needs a feeler gauge to be set. OR the magnets in the flywheel are bad.

How do I set the timing on a stihl 033 chain saw


timing on 2 strokes is factory set and cannot be changed
have the coil pack tested and if faulty replace it
most problems will be carby related or e- fuel use.

Erratic and weak spark


IF that is a small engine and has a magneto. You need to check the gap between the coil and the magnet on the flywheel. The easiest way to judge that gap is with a business card. If it fits between the two parts without effort, then it is too much gap.

New coil and still no spark on my GC 160 Honda tiller


Did you check the gap between the magnet on the flywheel an mag? Unplug the stop wire an see how that works. Sometimes the switch is bad. Are the magnets on the flywheel, did you set the gap on the flywheel to mag correctly? Did you do the simple thing an change the plug they go bad more than anything else.

Not getting any fire to spark plug from the coil pack does this motor have a set of points under the flywheel I do not have a manual


The timing could be off. Check to see if the little key in the top on the flywheel is inline with the key-way cut into the shaft. Its (the square key) designed to snap-off if the engine stops suddenly and prevent the engine shaft from snapping off at the fly-wheel. You'll need to pull the flywheel off and realign a new key in the same position as the shaft key-way.

Blower doesnt step up to full power- have changed engine and carb.fuil line is clear with new filter and adjusted.Machine is 6yrs+-am thinking coil needs replacement or gap is wrong.Whats the air gap 010...


The spark plug should be about 0.025" gap. With a fresh plug, the spark should be blue. If fairly weak looking, remove the cover over the flywheel and reset the ignition coil gap. Turn the flywheel magnets to just under the module, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws and let the module contact the magnets through the card. Tighten the screws, then turn the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Turn the flywheel one complete turn to make sure the gaps don't close further. Recheck for hot spark. Check the air filter and muffler for plugging. Hope this helps!

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run


Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
