Hi Jerry
Check to see if your coil is grounding out...
Here are a few more things to check.
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and cranking the engine or by pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.

Try taking off the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs on the magneto. Also clean the end of the spark plug wire. I use fine sand paper or emery cloth.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
thanks roundo4

SOURCE: i have a briggs and stratton motor off a ride on.

Make sure that there is .010-.012 clearance between the flywheel and the coil . As this is a engine that has electronic ignition you do not have to worry about points and condenser. Also check to make sure that the ground wire from the ignition switch to the coil is not shorted out on the frame anywhere.And make sure

Not getting spark in craftsman tractor lawnmower


How old is the engine? Does it have electronic ignition or points? Check the engine stop wire where it attaches to the throttle control on the engine. Make sure it is not grounding out. Has the magneto been removed? That is the Y shaped part behind the flywheel, where the spak plug wire attaches. If the mag has benn removed, it needs to be re-adjusted. The correct gap is .020 of an inch, about the thickness of a matchbook. This gap is measured between the two legs of the mag and the flywheel. I hope this helps, good luck.

if you have no spark check the contact between the flywheel magnet and mag and make sure they are clean and the gap is set ( old school the thickness of a cig. pack) if that doesn't do it check the wire and end for contact. Still no you probably need a new mag

Briggs & stratton 5hp motor will not start


Check the flywheel key, it may have sheared. If the key shears it will throw timing way off. This would cause a backfire or "pop". Start there and let me know, Daniel

I have a 5hp rototiller and I get no spark


Change the plug, then test again, if still no spark then check the kill mechanism under the shroud, and if still no spark change the ignition module.

I hope this helps.

Have an older tiller w/a 5hp briggs motor, no spark,had to repair inside wire going to coil, still no fire, are there points inside flywheel i should check & does flywheel pull off


First check continuity of coil to ensure there are no breaks .If there is a wire heading in under the flywheel, it is probably going to the points. Check coil is grounded properly.
The points are normally behind the flywheel which you will have to remove using a pullers. The nut holding the flywheel on to the shaft normally loosens in the same direction as the flywheel rotates but if there is any shaft thread exposed above the nut, check the threads to confirm this.
The capacitor near the points may be shorted, disconnect it to check this with a continuity tester.

No spark


If your engine is 11 years old it will have points @condensor under flywheel there are two wires coming from the condensor one goes to the coil and the other goes to a ground switch thats most of the time on the throotle linkage,if that wire is grounded against metal there will be not spark . the gap between coil and flywheel is 10 thousands (you can use an index card to set it .
