Chipper won't start

My yard machines 6.5 hp chipper all of a sudden won't start. It appears to have no spark. I haven't taken anything apart yet. I did take the fuel line off at the carburetor and fuel started running out. It looks to be a gravity fed carburetor. I took the plug wire off, removed the boot, placed the end of the wire near the spark plug and pulled the starter cord a couple of times, no spark. Does it have a coil or something similar?

What engine do you have im guessing a briggs & stratton was it running previously or sitting awhile it can be a few things the flywheel key could be sheered or the points are bad or the flywheel & coil are rusted check flywheel & coil to see if rusted if so take coil off mild sand paper like 80 grit i beleave clean both to get the right gap between flywheel & coil turn the flywheel alittle bit so the magnets won't touch coil or if coil still of set flywheel to where it will touch magnets fat peice of sand paper not folded but flat sand paper about .020 gap between magnet & coil if you place sand paper against the flywheel magnet then set coil against sand paper & magnet that should give you 0.020 gap & it should start if not e-mail me i will guide you through everything to get it started

Need owners manual for 2001 yard machine chipper schredder model #24A464B131


I have a operator's manual for 24a 463b129 5.5 hp. I also have an operator's manual for the engine (Tecumseh). I purchased the chipper new from Home Depot back in 2002. I think you will be disappointed at the lack of information. If still interested, e-mail me your e-mail address, and I can send you a PDF copy of these manuals. (wchan@bushbros.com)

I need a owners manual for a 10 hp chipper schreddermodel 24a464g729 serial no. 1io14g4o175 i think i may need blades


Go on line to " PartsTree.com" Start your search by clicking on MTD. Go to chipper/shredders, and fine your Model number, It's listed. In the search window- type in chipper blade. Also, on the drawing schematic of the machine, the blades are # 31 in the list of parts. I looked up the 2005 model. There are are few years with the same Model #.

9hhp craftsman chipper shredder won't start


Squirt a couple of spoonfuls of oil into the spark plug hole to increase the compression as it has been sitting so long. Also squirt a little starting fluid into the carb. and give it a shot I think it will start. Hope this will. donnyb60

Craftsman Chipper-Shredder Model No. 247.775870


If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.
