Hi, has the engine been sitting around for a long time? I would check plugs first, and fuel; check fuel is flowing properly and if it is old, replace with fresh.
Sorry its not the answere to your question, but if the points were off it would start but run ruff!

Changed the plugs wires and cap and rotor...think I might have screwed the firing order up....no misfire just wont turn over.


the wires to the plugs should not keep the motor from cranking over. If the battery is fully charged the ignition switch should engage the starter. If you think the firing order is wrong you need to determine 1 where is top dead center (the position the motor is in when #1 cylinder is at the top of the compression stroke). 2 what direction does the rotor turn 3 what is the firing order One way to make it easy to rotate the motor is to remove the spark plugs. no compression means no resistance to the starter so the motor should turn over with the key in the start position. If it won't crank over with the plugs out then something is wrong with the starter, battery, starter relay, or ignition switch. I always start with the basics. the battery should have at least 12.5 volts. if it does check the battery terminals. even if the starter is weak you should hear a click when the key is turned to the start position. Once you get the starter to turn over the motor you can tell when the number one cylinder is at top dead center by putting a finger over the spark hole as you crank over. You will feel the compression as the cylinder comes up on the compression stroke. I have used a large socket to slowly turn the motor over and when you are near top dead center you should be able to see the degrees of advance on the timing mark. Set the motor at top dead center then see where the rotor lines up with the wires on the distributor cap. that is where number one cylinder should fire. You then follow around in the direction that the rotor turns and the wires will corispond with the firing order. I always make a mark on the number one spot on the cap with a felt pen. That way you have a fixed reference point. Take care to verify that all the wires are to the proper plugs before trying to start. Take extra care at this point and make sure your firing order and rotor rotation are correct. I would triple check this. The firing order and rotor direction are usually somewhere on the autozone repair web site

My outboard wont start ive fixed the the ignition coils starter motor and spark plugs it gets spark but no fuel there is fuel getting there but just wont start tryed sparying fuel straight in the carbs but...


if you have spark and fuel it should atleast fire when you spray fuel in the carbs. if your spraying it just into the air intake it may not be making it to the intake manifold. have you checked the fuel pump? you also need to check for the possibility of a air leak in the fuel system causing the motor to fail to run because it has a very lean fuel mixture. check all fuel lines, fuel tank, couplers and carb gaskets. if you havent take the air intake cover off and try spraying some wd 40 or other mildly flammable product and see if the motor will fire that way. its likely the fuel tank or fuel lines are the problem from my point of view. good luck.

Lawnmower wont start


If this unit is very old, it probably does have points. But most are electronic. However, even if it does have points, the points is not the problem here. If the points can fire the primer and run until it dies, then i suspect you have a carb problem. If it lacks either compression, spark or gas you'll certainly will have an issue. I don't think you have a compression or a spark problem. Like i said, if it fires up to burn the priming then again i'd suspect the carburetor. Sounds like the center jet in the center leg of the carburetor internally may have a little dirt or such in it.
Hope this helps.
Good luck

After the bike gets hot it cuts back really bad.


although you have had the carbs sync,i dont think the mixture settings are correct,the carbs are leaning out to much when the motor is hot

Need the spark plug cable order for2000honda accord lx 4cylinder


The firing order is; 1-3-4-2 and the rotor moves in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the crank shaft and set the engine at TDC (top dead centre). This ill set the rotor arm pointing at No1 cylinder. From this point you can replace the HT leads in the above order.
