Question about Garden
1970 bolens garden tractor 1253 01 SN#58132 12HP tecumseh engine model HH120-120090C it is not firing I have cleaned the fly wheel and coil and change plug but it still won't fire
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.
