Question about Briggs & Stratton Ignition Kit 2-8 HP Engines with Breaker Point Ignition #5012D

1 Answer

I have a 2hp b&s motor that isn't getting spark.I had it sitting under a tarp for a while then my g/f moved it out into the rain. its an older motor off an edger. i got a new spark plug and it didn't help. If i hold the metal on the wire it will shock me but it doesn't send any shock through the plug. i went to clean the magneto and a black wire snapped inside where the plug wire comes out. also the only way ive known to kill the motor is grounding it with metal like a screwdriver etc. could there be a black wire somewhere that is disconnected or do i have bad points? any help is appreciated

Ok, change your spark plug lead and plug.If you get a "Shock" that sorta proves that it is all OK, check, ALL wiring, ends on wires, and connections are all clean and shinny. Clean with fine emery or sandpaper, That Black, wire is probably the "Kill" switch, it shorts out the Coil, to earth, and stops the motor. make sure that it's NOT touching earth.

Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

Car skips when started


spark plug wires may be bad. when have you changed spark plugs? look under hood when it's dark to see if there are 'sparks' coming off wires.

What's a footprint tarp?


It is a tarp that fits exactly under the footprint of your tent, but is an inch or two smaller. If you have a 10' x 10' tent, your tarp would be about 9'10" x 9'10". If you have a triangle-shaped tent, your tarp would be triangle-shaped.

It is smaller than the tent so rain (etc) does not dribble down the tent wall, land on the tarp, and pool under the tent.

There is a pin in the back by the hitch - make sure it is pushed in. If it is pushed in then check to see if there are any oil leaks under it.
