Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
Need to know how to test coil no fire to plug
Lawmowers have a coil mounted along side the flywheel. You have to remove pull cord assembly, then remove flywheel nut. now the coil is exposed. most of the time rust on the flywheel is the only problem. Clean with 120 grit sandpaper. Loosen the coil screws so the coil can move in and out, then palce a match-pak carboard flap between the flywheel and the coil and snug down the screws. you should be all set. Now make certain to check the flywheel key to see if it is bent or broken. These keys are made of soft metal to protect the crankshaft from being damaged. So replace the key if damaged or broken. This should solve your problem. To test the coil you either need a ampmeter, or you can pull the cord while holding sparkplug wire 1/2 inch from engine bolt and look fo spark while pulling the rope. Good luck. Don't forget to remove the matchbook from the flywheel after setting gap, which is .010 thousands of an inch.
