Can you replace the whole spark plug wire on the coil on 8hp Tecumseh without changing the coil


Not unless you cut the wire and splice a new piece on, which I would not recommend. A new coil should cost you less than $20 and is not hard to replace. See the attached YouTube video on how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6bQrNr4lv0

8HP Tecumseh with no spark


Check the gap between the coil and the flywheel. You can fold a dollar bill over a few times (3 or 4 layers thick) , place it against the flywheel , **** the coil up to it , and then tighten down the coil. This will give you a good clearance between the coil and flywheel and promote good spark.

Essentially I am suggesting you use the folded dollar bill to set the coil to flywheel distance/gap.

If it still doesn't work, I am at a loss. Is this a multi cylinder engine ? If so , does it have points or electronic ignition ?

I have one of these beasts on an old go kart, governor is broken or something, rebuilt it a couple years ago, I have picked some bolts and such off it, have a brand new carb pretty much, what exactly do you need? It was a strong running engine, but at this point it's too dangerous for the kids and I'm done dealing with it.

I have a Yerf-dog 3203 go-kart with a 6.5 HP Tecumseh engine. It's a pull start, and the pull cord broke. I can't get the cover off to fix the pull because the cover doesn't have screws. It has metal flat...


they are rivets, you will need a drill, the bit should be just big enough to fit the pin, once you start to drill it will come off. You can put screws back in once the repair is made. Good Luck Tim

First, try a new plug, then if still a problem ....

Assuming it's not pre-1985, then the ignition is solid state. To test - disconnect the 'kill' wire (usually black, but could be green or even red) coming from behind the cowling. Check for a spark. If OK, your problem is in the wiring. If still no spark, replace the coil.

If your engine IS ancient enough to have points, post back here and I'll advise.
