In order for there to be a spark at the plug, make sure the plug is grounded to the engine, it will not "fire" if it isn't.

Remove the cover with the crankrope, there should be a thin black wire going to the coil, going to a ground lug that kills the engine. Try unplugging this wire and re-check the fire...if it fires, there is a fault in this wire and should be replaced. The mower will run without it, but will not stop without "choking" out the engine

SOURCE: 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 .

You should be able to get a new magneto at any local lawnmower repair shop. The proper gap can be achieved using a standard business card. When you get the new mqagneto, turn the magnets on the flywheel to the opposite side away from the magneto, replace the magneto pulling it all the way back away from the flywheel and "snug" 1 or both of the mounting screws.
Now, turn the flywheel magnet to where it is centered under the magneto, insert the business card between the flywheel and magneto and loosen the screw you tightened earlier. Magneto will pull down tight to the magnet. Tighten both screws then rotate the flywheel to remove the business card

    Xt 500 has weak spark(flywheel magneto with ignition points).poor when cold and now won't even start.fuel fine.isolated ignition(magneto,coil and points).changed coil.points fine,resistance...


    It sounds to me that you have done most all of what is needed. Just take some fine sandpaper to the magnets in the flywheel. After sanding, wipe it clean, then spray it with carb cleaner to remove any possible residue. Now give the magnets a spray coating of clear polyurethane coating. The flywheel will never rust again. Replace the source coil and install a new spark plug. A plug that is carboned up can lessen spark voltage. The last item is the battery. A weak one can rob power. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

    I am getting no spark at plug. Briggs model 31c707 motor. I have charged battery, adjusted valves, verified fuel line clear. Pull spark plug put into wire hold to motor and crank (no spark)


    Hello, the next couple of things to check would be under the engine lid.

    1. Remove the screen over the air fan on the top of the fly wheel.
    2. Remove the 4 bolts securing the main lid and remove. Depending on the year of this engine it may have a secondary cover that Craftsman put on that will need to be removed first.
    3. When the lid is off you will see the magneto coil right above the spark plug; just follow the spark plug wire up to it.
    4. Use a wrench to see if the magnet on the fly wheel is strong. If the magnet is bad or really weak the flywheel will need to be replaced.
    5. Next check the magneto ground out wire. It will be a small black wire on the magneto. Unplug it then crank the engine. If the engine starts plug the wire back on the magneto and if it shuts down there is a short along the wire. It should only shut down or short out when the key is shut off. You will need to find the short if this is the problem.
    6. If the magnet is strong and the above test still fails to provide a spark then it is likely that the magneto is bad. You will need the rest of the model number; it will look something like: 31c707- # # # # - # # The part runs somewhere around $35.00 from Sears, but you might find it on-line cheaper.
    7. Replacing the magneto is pretty straight forward from there.
    8. Remove the old one and replace the old one adjusting it as far away from the flywheel as possible.
    9. Turn the flywheel until the magnet is directly across from the magneto.
    10. Put an ordinary business card between the magneto & the flywheel.
    11. Loosen the 2 screws that hold the magneto in place just enough for it to tighten up to hold the business card in place.
    12. Tighten the screws holding the magneto & rotate the flywheel to remove the business card.
    13. Test rotate the flywheel by hand a couple of full turns to ensure there is no contact with the magneto.
    14. Replace the small black wire, spark plug and spark plug wire, then test fire the engine.
    15. Shut the engine down and replace all the remaining parts in the reverse order as removed.
    You should be good to go after this. If this was helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!

    Have a 5600 Gen. with 10 HP B/S engine OHV. Did great during Rita, replaced carb- changed gas-replaced plug- doesn't want to fire it seems. Where Can I find the magneto ? Are there points on the flywheel...


    The magneto is by the flywheel. Depending on the age, there maybe points under the flywheel. If so you remove the flywheel and there the points are. Sometimes bugs build cacoons between points, make them inoperable. Newer engines have electronic ignition though. Follow the small wire from the magneto coil ( where the spark plug wire goes) it will either go under the flywheel through a plastic bushing, or to an electronic module. The magneto coils do fail you can test with an ohm meter. Before that test for spark. You can remove the spark plug, and let it rest on the engine to get ground, and turn the engine over. You always need 1-spark, 2 fuel . If you have spark, see if it will hit on starting fluid, if it does, then you have a carb or fuel filter issue. Those shut off valves on the bottom of those tanks, can be a problem

    I have a Briggs & Stratton Sovereign 375 engine model no 1OD902 type 0129B1 code 03012751. No spark at all - any ideas please. Had the flywheel off - that's as far as I got. Bob


    Bob, if you have the flywheel back on, first check the air gap between the magneto (ignition armature) at the magnets on the flywheel (a common business card works well for this) then unplug the small wire from the magneto and check for spark, if you have spark, repair the kill switch and/or wire, if NO spark, replace the magneto.
    If you remove the spark plug, you can hand spin the flywheel fast enough to ascertain spark

    My walk behind mower wont start..has no spark with new plug or old one could it be a rusty magneto


    Rust on the magneto has no bearing on the output of a spark. The magneto or the points if it has them could be the problem. If the unit has points they may be under the flywheel. If so equiped, that would be the logical place to start. If no points, I would replace the magneto. When you place the new one on, place a piece of paper between the flywheel and the magneto. When you tighten the magneto, pull out the paper and turn the flywheel by hand. If the magneto turns without touching, put everything together and try it out. Good luck...Lee

    It wont spark at all. No fire. Just put a new spark plug so that's not the issue. This lawnmower is only 1.5 years old. Thanks


    Could be magneto bad, wire from magneto bad, ground on magneto bad, or the clearance between the flywheel and the magneto is rusted up if it was outside. Clean flywheel with sandpaper and set magneto gap using a match book flap.
