Re: what is left to do but change the flywheel?
Check what they call air gap between the coil and flywheel .010-.012 gap
also be sure your flywheel is in time.
you will actually have to remove it to do this and check for the sheared key or be sure the key way aligns with the crankshaft keyway on the flywheel

Did you check the gap between the magnet on the flywheel an mag? Unplug the stop wire an see how that works. Sometimes the switch is bad. Are the magnets on the flywheel, did you set the gap on the flywheel to mag correctly? Did you do the simple thing an change the plug they go bad more than anything else.
My mantis tiller ran fine,I put it up for the winter and now it won't start,I checked to see if it was getting gas which it was, could it be the coil? I did check and they say its very rare that the coil goes out.I also check for any type of spark and nothing. Please help!!!! thanks ,Clay
Sounds like it's flooding either from over choking or the inlet needle in the carb is leaking. Have you removed the plug and blown out the cylinder and plug with air and then tried to restart? Be careful not to keep cranking with the choke pulled out. When it 'hits' ONE time, move the choke halfway in and crank again
There are only 4 parts to the 2-stroke Mantis ignition system: the spark plug, the "kill button", the flywheel with embedded magnets, and the coil with integral plug wire. There are no "points" to clean or refurbish. If you've tried a new spark plug, unplugged the wire leading up the handlebars, and the magnets on the side of the flywheel are strong enough to attract a screw driver blade, then it must be a bad coil. That's all it could be. End of story.
Cruising the internet I see where these Echo coils go bad all the time. You can order the coil, but if the machine hasn't run in several years the carb will also need cleaning. So one thing leads to another. The gear box grease also needs replacing each year. What I'm trying to tell you is these are disposable tillers and due to length of time, incomplete care/ storage, ....whatever, this one's time is up.
