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.

My rover ranger ride on mower has been sitting for 7 or 8 years it has no spark even though i have changed the spark plug have you any areas ? regards Bob


Bob it could be that the magnetism of the magnets of the flywheel has diminished, or their is corrosion in the gap between magnets and Coil. Spin the motor over very fast with a pneumatic or electric socket gun, with the plug out, on the lead and earthed, to check for spark then.Also check for corrosion/contact to the on/off switch and key. To delve further, loosen the flywheel nut, don't remove, but ensure it is level or slightly above the thread on the shaft. Place a large screwdriver or lever under 2 sides of the flywheel, and gently tap the nut/shaft while GENTLY levering the flywheel up. Once it's loose, remove the nut and flywheel and inspect inside for rust particles or loose wires. A closer plug gap will also help if spark is too weak to jump, but re-adjust once you have had it running a while-it may not rev properly with too close spark gap.

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

My 5 hp briggs stopped running. No spark. took recoil off to reveal a rotten coil with wires rotted off. cleaned off the flywheel and replaced the coil with one from Napa. The engine does not have points...


Did you set the Air Gap correctly, it should be .020 inch. If the Air Gap is correct and you cleaned the pickup magnets, you should be getting spark. I have different color coded plastic sheets of the correct thickness to set the Air Gap on different engines. You could use a use a side panel from a plastic soda bottle (Mt Dew, Pepsi, ect) Place it between the Flywheel and the Armature/Ign Coil. Allow the magnets on the Flywheel to pull the Armature/Ign Coil together and then tighten the Armature/Ign Coil bolts. Carefully turn the Engine while pulling the plastic from between the Armature/Ign Coil Pickups. The Armature/Ign Coil is now properly set.

Generall speaking for a gasoline engine to run you need 3 things. (1) Spark, (2) Gas and (3) Air.

I hope this is helpful. UAW 974

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!

Getting no spark on my stihl sh85 blower/vac


You will need to check the air gap at the ignition coil/flywheel. It should be about .010"-.012" where the magnets in the flywheel pass under the coil legs. That is about the thickness of a regular business card. So, some disassembly will be required. If the gap is closed, or too large, you would have no spark. If the gap is OK, then the coil may have failed. Make sure the screws holding it to the engine are tight, and if you remove them, you may wish to use threadlocker on them, so they don't vibrate loose and cause the gap to change. If you need more help adjusting the air-gap, please post back.

No fire mtd 21inch 3.5hp


You should have a strong, blue sparlk. Make sure plug is grounded to engine when you test. Don't do it in the air. Check the flywheel/coil air gap. I think on Briggs it should be about the thickness of a standard business card. If after setting the air gap and there is no spark...plug is bad or ingition coil module is defective. When you adjust the gap, make sure the magnets in the flywheel are lined up with the "legs" on the coil to assure the correct setting.

What is left to do but change the flywheel?


check what they call air gap between the coil and flywheel .010-.012 gap
also be sure your flywheel is in time.
you will actually have to remove it to do this and check for the sheared key or be sure the key way aligns with the crankshaft keyway on the flywheel

Flywheel magnet came loose


Hello, my name is Mark
Sorry to say but the only way to fix it is to replace the flywheel. After you put the new flywheel on you will have to double check the gap between the flywheel and the coil if you take a business card it should just fit between and should be a little snug. If the coil is off a little you will have problems starting. You can adjust the gap by loosening the 2 bolts on top of the coil lust enough that you can tap the coil towards the flywheel, just before you loosen the bolts turn the flywheel so the magnets on the flywheel are not where the coil sits but just to one side or the other of the coil, then set the gap, tighten the bolts and turn the magnets are where the coil is with the business card in between. It should be fairly snug to where you can just get the card out and not tear it in any way. Put your cover on and check for spark and you should be ok. Any questions please feel free to ask. Good luck and have a nice day.
