Ignition break down under load

This can happen when the saw gets hot. If the coil is breaking down under heat /load it must be replaced. There is no repair.

Eng. breaks down when hot like a cyl cuts out. Could this be a coil module breaking down when hot . The bike other then this runs fine

You need need to check the pulsar pick up ( like points for a cdi style ignition) , the coils,and the spark plug caps. If any of these are bad replace them. If all test good then your problem is a bad cdi box.

Coil problems getting hot and shutting of the van.1985 dodge 318

If the coil has never been changed then replace it and the problem should go away. As the coil gets older it starts to cause power failure, they tend to break down more common during the hot summer like a battery. Also check your wiring to coil for any frayed or cracked insulation on wiring. Hope this will help you.

Replaced coil breaks down when it gets hot. spits & sputters. have changed coil 2 or 3 times . keeps breaking down.

Does this machine have an electric fuel solenoid on the carburetor bowl?
If so, shutoff fuel supply to the carb and remove solenoid. Check for sticky operation using your finger pressure olny. If sticky, spray and spray and work with finger to free it up. Then spray once more!

Blow it completely dry and bench test it with a 12vdc source AWAY FROM FLAMMABLES!
It should snap down quick, nice & firm with power on and rise back in the same manner when power is interrupted.

Hope this helps.

I think you MIGHT have the cart before the horse ... what is the problem? you think the solution is replace the coil. Whats happening?

are you points or breakerless ignition? Is it set correctly?

You running off the fly wheel or from the battery?

Your plug wires are in good shape?

Stops firing on middle 2 cylinders when it gets to running temp

The coil is probably breaking down internally when the heat rises. The only other possibility is the electronic ignition going bad. Have a dealer check the bike before spending bucks on a new coil when the old one may actually be good.

Please rate this solution. Thanks! :)
