No spark can be several things but begin with the easiest first.

  1. Ensure the grounding wire (thin black wire) that connects to the coil is not grounded.
  2. Ensure sure the plug wire end is connected well to the plug wire, some of these clamp the wire interior cord to the metal wire end by wrapping and crimping around the plug wire.
  3. Make sure the ignition generator coil is not scrubbing against the flywheel, there should be .030 air gap between the coil and the flywheel magnets.
  4. If you are mechanically savy, remove the flywheel and inspect the breaker points, replace/adjust as needed.

Check to see if the plug is old and dirty. if it's new, check the gap.

I have one of these beasts on an old go kart, governor is broken or something, rebuilt it a couple years ago, I have picked some bolts and such off it, have a brand new carb pretty much, what exactly do you need? It was a strong running engine, but at this point it's too dangerous for the kids and I'm done dealing with it.

Engine cranks but no spark ???


If it is the 1.9l, I have had the same problem. Checking the spark, and then removing the distributor to see if your roto is turning during engine start, will give you a good indication if your timing belt is bad, broken.

Spark plug gap


All these engines have a magneto ignition. The faster the mag spins the higher (better) the sparkplug voltage. So the gap is only set for the ease of starting and is not a huge part of tunning as it is on a car. Try .020 inches.
