Drain gas completely from tank to ensure no water is in the tank, check for spark with spark tester, if no spark shows with spark tester, re check gap on coil, if points & condenser are present, sand down the gap between the points to ensure a proper connection. Make sure to change fuel filter with a high quality John Deere fuel filter and use fresh fuel... Fuel can "go bad" after 1-3 months, if the tractor is/ left outside chances are there is water in the tank.

ok, since you have the points, I assume you have the B43g Onan
engine. Was it running before the new parts were installed?
Check your point gap and make sure it is .016, plugs ahould be gapped at .025 Make sure your plug wires are good too. Should be somewhere between 0 and 10,000 ohms per foot, when measured with an ohmmeter. Once everything is rechecked for gap distance, make sure there is no spark by pulling plug out, leaving wire on and ground the outside of plug to the chassis of the tractor.
Crank over and look for the spark. Coils are about $100, so you want to eliminate everything else first.
Diagnosing a points ignition for no spark is really simple. Do you have 12V at the coil? Do you get a spark when you connect and disconnect the negative terminal of the coil to ground? If not you have a bad coil.

When it shuts down crack the fuel cap and listen for the woosh of a vacuum on the fuel tank. If you hear this, clean the pinhole vent in the fuel cap, or replace it. Being partially plugged would cause you to be starved for fuel and could explain your issue, and why it goes away after a period of time.

The first thing to check is the ignition timing then the spark plug gaps. There are specific settings/size for the above and must be correct for the car to run smoothly.

Wont Start - No Spark


Older VW's and Audi's are notarious for this type of behavior. You actaully need a Vag or good diagnostic tester to tell you which plugs are mis-firing. You will need to replace a coil-pac or two. VW's issued a recall notice about 3 months ago about this issue and intends to re-imburse owners on certain models and years for coil-pac repalcement. After market coil-pacs should cost less than $50.00 each. Hope this helps.

Well take a plug lead off any plug and the plug and put plug in lead and rest it on the engine with the thread resting on the metal block and then spin it over if a good blue spark then coil etc is all ok BUT if no spark then the coil could be faulty or condencer OR points need cleaning and regaping to 12thou

1974 Volvo Penta 280 won't start...no spark at coil


When you say no spark, do you mean from the main coil wire or do you know if the coil is getting fire on the plus lead? Check your negative lead to see if it became ungrounded. I think you meant the condenser was eliminated, but if you had a resistor the new kit may have been 6 volt and without the resistor its 12 volt.

Wont start getting weak orange spark


Hi, Kinwin and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset
