Ignition coil not working

This is a G50 Honda engine on a mid- tine tiller. I get an extremely weak spark when shorting the ht lead to earth but not enough at all when the plug is connected. Machine has not been run for 10 years but worked fine at last use. Has the coil insulating lacquer degraded inside it thus shorting out much of the windings? If so and not repairable where can I get another and is there a part number? Machine is 35 years old +. THanks

I am not sure either, but I think that it would be alot cheeper to buy a new tiller, than to use your strenght fixing a old tiller that you didn't bother to keep the instructions for (no, I am not trying to be harsh. I am trying to be nice. and I am not sure about it coming with instructions, they usually do.)

SOURCE: Honda FG100 Tiller - Tines wont move

I took the transmission apart and the gears were fine. The friction pads on the centrifugal clutch don't seem to make full contact with the drum. Does anyone know what the thickness of the friction pads are suppose to be? I used some belt dressing on the pads and got some movement on the tines. With no wear on the gears, I guess I'll be replacing the clutch.

SOURCE: Tiller tines will not turn. Engine runs fine...

Well hopefully it's not the transmission, as sometimes these tend to go. Another common but cheaper repair are the two bearings where the tines connect to the unit.

MORE THAN LIKELY.. The bearing is located above the worm gear housing, the part connected to the tines beneath the guard. This removal can be somewhat frustrating but if you remove it and remove the engine flange you'll be able to manually spin the drive shaft and see if it's the worm gear housing/lower bearings or if it's the more likely bearing on the clutch drum or the clutch itself.

SOURCE: Honda Tiller revs and works for 30 seconds and then shuts down.

Hello. you have some gunk in the carburator. Get a can of starter fluid or carburator cleaner aerosol and a helper. Remove the air filter and start it up. Spray a little starter fluid into the air cleaner to keep it running for three or four minutes and the problem should clear. If it does not clear the carburator will have to be disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt. j.

What do u do when spark is weak on Yamaha blaster


Check battery voltage, remove spark plug suppressor cap from HT lead and see if spark is good by holding lead in a gloved hand and placing the lead end near the engine. If spark good get a new suppressor cap. Check the plug shows a good spark in the new cap by holding the screw thread to the engine. Poor spark change spark plug. If you get a poor spark from the HT lead then get the ignition coil checked.

1992 dodge d150 won't start getting fuel and spark


So many problems it could be. Bad plug leads, leads on wrong plugs, starter dragging tension down so plugs have weak spark, ignition timing is out? Low fuel pressure, weak compression due to worn bores or piston rings. Damp tension leads, coil, condenser or ballast pack weak. Distributor or rotor arm shorting to earth. You don't say it this happened overnight or vehicle hasn't started in quite a while. Did you do a repair or service the engine?

Ignition mystery! 1994 GMC Suburban 2500 5.7 mtr. No spark to spark plugs. Have spark from coil to distributor. Have changed coil wire, cap, rotor, ignition module, and coil. have 12.5 volts going to...


I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

Car wont start but kicks over


Since you do have A fully charged battery and also you do receive fuel smell after crank start and the car wont start,either you do have an Ignition fault means not giving the spark,advice remove the spark plugs and check whether are wet with fuel,see whether are black,if so change them and before start check by leaving an HT lead off a spark and use one of the old ones connected to the HT lead and earthed to the engine,ask somebody to start the engine checking for any spark comes out. If yes then put the HT lead back to the new spark on the engine and try. If ther is not any spark,then you have to go backwards from the HT leads to distributor,Rotor Arm,Electronic igniter,Coil if is fitted,Fuse and relay. Good Luck.

Engine missing/ backfiring, no pulling power


Hi I am vortash sounds to me like an ignition lead short check that the leads on the pot are not sparking to earth effectively cutting off the spark to one cylinder ( electricity takes the shortest point to earth so wont reach the plug if sparking to the cylinder ) I think youll find if it was the Kick stand sensor it wouldnt even fire up .. ? check all your HT circuit for damp or damaged leads .. hope this is of help regrads Vortash

No power to the spark plugs


Check first the wire connections to your ignition unit. Are they properly plugged? If all wires are good, try to measure the voltage from one of the wires to the ignition unit while the ignition key is in "on" position. If there's no voltage, have someone check your ECM. If there's a good voltage reading, try replacing your ignition unit with a good one.

1999 yz 125 weak spark won't start


Not much info Smitty but if that weak spark is constant (ie:pulsing ) i would guess that the trigger coil is ok.I'd make a check on your ignition coil earths then do a couple of continuity tests on your coil primary and secondary , orange terminal to ground,orange terminal to ht lead ,if they check out ok according to service manual specs then i'd run continuity test on the source coil.....Hope this is helpful in someway ...Smittycat.......from Flabbycat
