Question about Mtd Heavy Machinery
How have you determined that there is no spark? Have you used a type of spark tester?
What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
If you do not have a spark tester, remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.
*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug, it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!
That age of unit should have electronic ignition, so if there is a 'no spark' condition, I would double check safety switches that are found on snouts, shrouds, bags, discharge chute, ect.
Get back with me on how this issue works out.
