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.

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,

Mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine no spark from coil mantis 2cycle tiller i got it running tryed to start it 4hrs latter same old problem wont start, plug wet with gas wont start. coil was checked by shop...


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

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

Item: Mantis Tiller Problem: wire to kill switch came loose from where it attaches under the cowling covering the engine. Question: where does it attach, I need to reconnect it


Hello:

The Shut Off Wire is Attached to the Ign Coil.
There is a Spade Lug on the Coil that the Wire Attaches to.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully
