Question about Garden
Is your blade attached while your trying to start this engine? The blade has to be attached since lawn mower engines have a lightweight flywheel. The blade acts as a counterweight. What happened before the mower became hard to start and kick back? Did it happen all of a sudden? Did you hit something, then it started to happen?---
Is this an overhead valve engine or an L head engine? -----
IF you do have the blade attached and everything is intact check the following:
Armature air gap---
Kill wire....temporarily disconnect and see if it still kicks back, its a long shot, but it could be shorting out against the engine.--------
the correct gap between the flywheel and coil the Armature gap. .005 to .015in is sufficient .check out.
Please do rate the solution. Thank you for using fixya.keep updated. thanks.
