I have a 16.5 hp onan engine in a 1979 gravely tractor -with engine running why are my ignition points sparking


Ignition points open to collapse magnetic field in ignition coil to make spark. They have a condenser across the points to reduce the spark which comes because the current collapse also generates a back feed current in the now open circut in the primary windings. This is the spark that damages and wears out the points. Check with a competent Auto Electrician that the condenser (also called a Capacitator) is the right capacity for the coil being used.

No spark at points


Sounds to me, if no spark to points I would suspect the coil.

STARTED AND RAN ROUGH AND WONT START AGAIN... NO SPARK


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.

1970 b and s tractor/mower by craftsman,i have spark at points but not at spark plug


There should not be a spark at the points. If you have spark there, replace points and condensor and retry.

I have a simplicity model 4211 lawn tractor with no spark.


terry, check for kill line on motor to see if grounded out,you can remove from ground clip.
also you say you checked points??????
check for flywheel to coil pickup clearance .
point type coil to flywheel the airgap should be 25- 1000ths with feeler guage. on electronic ignition coil to flywheel pickup the air gap should be set @ 10-1000ths with feeler guage. hope this solves your problem..........lemmee kno.....chris

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.
