SOURCE: mtd snowblower 4.5 no spark new coil,new plug

Hello pbck98:

>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File I Made for Checking the Coil/Ign Coil/Magnetron/Armature on Small Engines. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**To Check the Ign Coil; Remove the Spark Plug/s.
>>With a Good Plug, Wrap a Wire Around the Threads of the Plug and Attach the Other End of the Wire to the Engine Block. >>Remove the Blower Housing (metal engine cover). The Wire that is Connected to the Coil/Ign Module from the Shut Off Switch needs to be Removed (unplugged) from the Coil/Ign Module.
>>Now Check for Spark at the Plug.
>>If Spark, then the Shut Off Switch or the Wire is Bad.
>>If Still No Spark, then the Coil/Ign Module is Bad. If there are Safety Switches on this Unit and the Coil is Good; you Need to Check the Safety Switches for Being Bad and Check the Oil Guard Switch also.**
>>If you have a New Coil/Ign Coil and Still No Spark, then
>>Turn the Coil Over and Check for Spark. Ign Coils are Wound 1 Way for Clockwise Engine and the Oposite Way for Counter Clockwise Rotation Engines. I have Seen Ign Coil Boxed Wrong and Turning the Ign Coil Over will Correct the Problem.
>>The Coil is Gapped to .015in from the Flywheel.
For Better Assistance;
>>Send me the Make, Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Tec 3.5 horse - 2 cycle - pull start - mtd snowblower - has spark and fuel - won't fire or start -


give it a shot of starting fluid, if it fires, it has a fuel problem, if it does not fire then you have a broken flywheel key.You will have spark with a broken or partially broken flywheel key, but your timing will be off and it will not run. good luck

My MTD 524 5 horse snowblower will start and run for about 3 to 5 minitues and then stall. Will restart after priming a few times and then die when blades are engaged. I installed a new spark plug and same...


This sounds like a fuel issue. Could be bad gas, water in the gas, improper gas/ oil mixture (if 2 cycle), wrong or incorrect level of crankcase oil (4 cycle) or a partially plugged fuel filter.
