SOURCE: mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine: no spark from coil

There are only 4 parts to the 2-stroke Mantis ignition system: the spark plug, the "kill button", the flywheel with embedded magnets, and the coil with integral plug wire. There are no "points" to clean or refurbish. If you've tried a new spark plug, unplugged the wire leading up the handlebars, and the magnets on the side of the flywheel are strong enough to attract a screw driver blade, then it must be a bad coil. That's all it could be. End of story.

Cruising the internet I see where these Echo coils go bad all the time. You can order the coil, but if the machine hasn't run in several years the carb will also need cleaning. So one thing leads to another. The gear box grease also needs replacing each year. What I'm trying to tell you is these are disposable tillers and due to length of time, incomplete care/ storage, ....whatever, this one's time is up.

Sorry.

Sounds like it's flooding either from over choking or the inlet needle in the carb is leaking. Have you removed the plug and blown out the cylinder and plug with air and then tried to restart? Be careful not to keep cranking with the choke pulled out. When it 'hits' ONE time, move the choke halfway in and crank again

Im just getting out my mantis and im having some problems. I have checked the tines and they are free of weeds and dibris. When I give the machine gas it acts as if it is binding up and does not...


The carburetor is having some issues. I would go to a repair shop and see if they can adjust it for you. On certain carburetors it requires a special tool to adjust it. I believe that the Mantis Tiller has an echo engine on it. If you cannot find a local dealer for your Mantis then I would try for an Echo dealer.
I hope this helps. :)

Yesterday it quit running after performing normally for about an hour. Now I cannot get it started. Motor turns over easily, but won't fire.


If you have the 2-cycle Mantis tiller, it uses the ECHO engine. ECHO warrants the ignition coil for life to the original purchaser. If you have VERIFIED there is no spark at the plug, grab you reciept and head for your local ECHO dealership. If you aren't sure where one is and need to locate a Servicing Dealer, click HERE.

Hope this is helpful,

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
