Question about Heavy Machinery
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
