Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Vanguard V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 23 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 386777 - 0036 - E1
Have 303447 briggs 16 hp only fires one cylinder swap coils same one no fire both have 110 conpression what could be problem
Have you also changed the spark plug too. The ignition circuit is pretty simple, from the battery, the Coil is energized, the "points" or equivalent, through the "Distributor" or equivalent, and onto the Spark Plug. So it is a simple matter to work along the path, proving the "Integrity" at each, point by testing. IF it still doesn't fire after ensuring all Leads are OK, the Spark Plugs are proven OK, the Cables, the Points, & Distributor, . IT is either that or the Ignition Timing is OFF. Please check all those points.

SNAPPER RIDING LAWN MOWER (CONVERTIBLE) / BRIGGS & STRATTON TWIN V MOTOR BY VANGUARD.
TYPE1145-A1 (4756 UNDERNEATH THE 1145-A1)
PROBLEM, WHEN I TURN THE IGNITION KEY, IT IS JUST LIKE THERE IS NO BATTERY IN IT.
I HAVE DONE THE FOLLOWING:
THE NEW BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED,
REPLACED THE INGITION SWITCH, SOLENOID, ALL KILL SWITCHES CHECK OUT OK, JUMP SOLENOID- THE MOTOR TURNS NORMAL BUT NO FIRE TO MAGNETOS, CLEANED FLYWHEEL OF RUST, ALSO THE MAGNETOS, GAPPED BACK TO .010, REMOVED FLYWHEEL AND CLEANNED ALL DIRT AND GRASS. HAVE CHECKED EACH WIRE FOR CONTINUETY. ALL OK.
THERE ARE TWO WIRES COMING FROM THE COIL UNDER THE FLYWHEEL, ONE RED THAT CHANGES TO A WHITE WIRE THAT GOES TO THE NEG. POST ON THE SOLENOID. THE OTHER WIRE FROM UNDER THE FLYWHEEL IS BLACK. IT GOES TO THE SAME CONNECTOR AS THE RED ONE DOES, HOWEVER IT GOES NO FARTHER, IT IS JUST PLACED IN THE CONNECTOR. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND A WIRE DIAGRAM USING THE ABOVE NUMBERS FOR THE MOTOR.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
