How do you test the ignition coil on 410r Ryobi tiller?


with a multimeter set on ohms resistance and in the coil wiring
you can also test by removing the plug , using a new plug connect the ht wire to the plug and ground the body of the plug onto metal of the engine-- problem
pull the cord fast and check for a spark across the plug gap
good blue spark --not a coil problem

check the air gap between the coil and the flywheel ( .005 to .010" gap) coils seldom fail and it generally the plug or switch wires that are at fault

8HP Tecumseh with no spark


Check the gap between the coil and the flywheel. You can fold a dollar bill over a few times (3 or 4 layers thick) , place it against the flywheel , **** the coil up to it , and then tighten down the coil. This will give you a good clearance between the coil and flywheel and promote good spark.

Essentially I am suggesting you use the folded dollar bill to set the coil to flywheel distance/gap.

If it still doesn't work, I am at a loss. Is this a multi cylinder engine ? If so , does it have points or electronic ignition ?

No spark


No spark can be several things but begin with the easiest first.
  1. Ensure the grounding wire (thin black wire) that connects to the coil is not grounded.
  2. Ensure sure the plug wire end is connected well to the plug wire, some of these clamp the wire interior cord to the metal wire end by wrapping and crimping around the plug wire.
  3. Make sure the ignition generator coil is not scrubbing against the flywheel, there should be .030 air gap between the coil and the flywheel magnets.
  4. If you are mechanically savy, remove the flywheel and inspect the breaker points, replace/adjust as needed.

What is left to do but change the flywheel?


check what they call air gap between the coil and flywheel .010-.012 gap
also be sure your flywheel is in time.
you will actually have to remove it to do this and check for the sheared key or be sure the key way aligns with the crankshaft keyway on the flywheel

Spark plug gap


All these engines have a magneto ignition. The faster the mag spins the higher (better) the sparkplug voltage. So the gap is only set for the ease of starting and is not a huge part of tunning as it is on a car. Try .020 inches.
