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.

Why does my chain saw lose power and shut off as soon as it gets hot.can't restart until it cools off.


Check coil pic up or the electrical pick up in the pull string housing. Remove that and u will see the fly wheel next to that is the electrical pick up .look at fly wheel make sure magnets are clean surface ,they are in the fly wheel itself.after that remove coil and clean surface that faces fly wheel. Using a match book cover place it between fly wheel and coil ,make sure it moves but not falls out snug ,tighten coil screws and remove match book cover. If it dose it again re place coil look for small engine shop in your area and the can help get u a new one .weak spark means coil,sparkplug

No spark


The spark generator that sits close to the fly wheel only needs a mm gap. Make sure that this is the case. If there is a small gap there is possibly a break in the wire or the points under the fly wheel may also be rusty.

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

My lawn mower srarts than dies its not out off gas or oil


There are a few popular solutions for your problem. You can try changing out the old gas completely, with new fresh gas, you can try changing the spark-plug and air-filter. You can try cleaning the carburator or replacing it if you find it is broken. And you can try removing the spark-plug wire and putting in-line, a spark tester. The ark should be blueish white Not dull orange or yellow. If the spark is insufficient then you can try removing the pull-string cover and lightly sand the magnet that is on the fly-wheel and passes by the ignition coil. Good-luck.

Troy Bilt Pony won't start


Try taking the shroud off of the motor and and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs next to the fly wheel. You can also clean the end of the spark plug cable that hooks onto the plug. I use fine sandpaper or emery cloth.

Good Luck

just trace the spark plug wire to the coil but you can check the spark by putting a new plug in the wire and make sure it is grounded and turn the engine over if you have spark then you have to pull the fly wheel off and check the fly wheel key

Dirt bike with no spark


I dont know how much you know about dirtbikes but you need to check the points. They are located under the fly wheel and they allow the engine to send a spark to the coil pack which then sends it to the spark plug. The fly wheel is under the side case, which is only held by a few screws.Once you get that off,the points,Which are under the fly wheel, just need to be cleaned off with a little sand paper. if that dosent help the spark then check the coil pack. The coil pack is the black box where the spark plug cable wire comes out of. look and see if its melted or broken in any way. If the coil is not ruined then you might need a new spark plug cable.
