Question about Garden
I'm about going crazy now as it seems I've tried everything possible to get some spark out of an old Briggs (I bought in non-running condition on a tiller)
I put in a new Magnetron (installed correctly), new plug, starting fluid in the carb, addition groun wire attached from engin block to frame of tiller....But I don't think I'm even getting spark. I get a few put,puts at most and that's with the starting fluid.
Any ideas on what the deal is?
Sounds like you may need to pull the flywheel and check that the flywheel timing key is not sheared

Tips for a great answer:
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
