SOURCE: bolens garden tractor will not start

At this age, the engine will have points under the flywheel. If the coil is OUTSIDE the flywheel, forget fixing it and just replace the coil with a later solid state unit, then cut the points wire.

If the coil is UNDER the flywheel with the points, you'll have to stick with them, but replace them AND the condenser. These parts (and replacement coils) are still available, but decide quickly - Tecumseh have gone, and when all these old parts are used up, that's it.

Lawn mower 6.5 that's getting very faint Spark. was left out in the rain so I clean the Magneto the coil I'm still getting faint Spark any help out there thank you


Clean the fly wheel and then check the points. The gap between the megneto coil and fly wheel is minimal. Also check the spark plug lead is clean also. Then get a new spark plug and it should work.

Ken are you getting any spark at the plugs ?
If not remove air housing to expose fly wheel and spark coil there is a ground wire going to coil, unplug it to see if you get spark now if not you need a new spark coil.

This is a Briggs and Stratton Rototiller, Model 130292-1636-02. I think my Armature might be bad. This is a Briggs and Stratton part # 397358 with electronic trigger (starter). After cleaning my fly-wheel...


the fly wheel is touche you need no more than 5 thousands clearance between the
fly wheel and the coil for the best spark

now on the other hand if you have points on this unit its best to put in new points
and condenser and set the points the same settings as the coil

this will get spark for you

hope this helps you
good luck

I have a B&S IC 12.5


There are no points. There is only a coil mounted to the outside of the flywheel with a black wire that is used to kill spark when grounded out. Check for spark, if no spark present, then disconnect black wire and check for spark, if spark is present then you have a safety switch issue. If no spark present bad coil. Remove 2 screws, remove coil. When you assemble new coil, put in 2 screws loose then put a business card in between coil and magnet tighten screws then spin flywheel to get card out and you are done.

No spark to the plugs , case 1430 tractor, changed points, plugs , plug wires, condensor, battery , coil. what else could it be?


You can try cleaning the rust off of the magnets on the fly wheel with emery cloth or fine sandpaper. Also clean the little prongs that are real close to the fly wheel.

I have a simplicity model 4211 lawn tractor with no spark.


terry, check for kill line on motor to see if grounded out,you can remove from ground clip.
also you say you checked points??????
check for flywheel to coil pickup clearance .
point type coil to flywheel the airgap should be 25- 1000ths with feeler guage. on electronic ignition coil to flywheel pickup the air gap should be set @ 10-1000ths with feeler guage. hope this solves your problem..........lemmee kno.....chris
