Did you check, that the magnet is on the flywheel.
When you cleaned the flywheel, did some metal rasping gather around it.
The magnet should be strong. A small steel instrument will be pulled by it.

The high voltage coil can be tested for resistance with an Ohm meter. The resistance may be some kOhm but not MOhm. If MOhm it should be replaced.

If the coil and magnet are OK, and well attached to the flywheel and aside with a minimal air gap, then the coil may be checked by turning the flywheel. As the voltage on coil ends when magnet passes by the coil should be very high, the only way for checking is with a spark plug, connected to the checked high voltage cable, the thread of the plug well connected to motor case. A spark is the prove that it is OK

Check also the HV cabel and the connection of other coil end to motor case.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me. Some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs (meaning useless). Better don’t rank.

How do i fix weak spark


You can try to remove cover and remove coil. Then, take some emery cloth and carefully clean the end of coil that faces flywheel. Then reinstall coil and remember to set gap per manufacturers recommendation. If your not sure you can use a feeler gauge and set to .004 -.005". This is slightly closer than most but will be OK, and should give a little more spark as well. Also, don't forget to clean up magnet on flywheel with emery cloth too. Doing this should give you as much spark as you can get from coil, if it still isn't enough you may have to replace coil. Good luck and I hope this helped.

Have a 5600 Gen. with 10 HP B/S engine OHV. Did great during Rita, replaced carb- changed gas-replaced plug- doesn't want to fire it seems. Where Can I find the magneto ? Are there points on the flywheel...


The magneto is by the flywheel. Depending on the age, there maybe points under the flywheel. If so you remove the flywheel and there the points are. Sometimes bugs build cacoons between points, make them inoperable. Newer engines have electronic ignition though. Follow the small wire from the magneto coil ( where the spark plug wire goes) it will either go under the flywheel through a plastic bushing, or to an electronic module. The magneto coils do fail you can test with an ohm meter. Before that test for spark. You can remove the spark plug, and let it rest on the engine to get ground, and turn the engine over. You always need 1-spark, 2 fuel . If you have spark, see if it will hit on starting fluid, if it does, then you have a carb or fuel filter issue. Those shut off valves on the bottom of those tanks, can be a problem

Have you also changed the spark plug too. The ignition circuit is pretty simple, from the battery, the Coil is energized, the "points" or equivalent, through the "Distributor" or equivalent, and onto the Spark Plug. So it is a simple matter to work along the path, proving the "Integrity" at each, point by testing. IF it still doesn't fire after ensuring all Leads are OK, the Spark Plugs are proven OK, the Cables, the Points, & Distributor, . IT is either that or the Ignition Timing is OFF. Please check all those points.

I have a briggs and stratton motor off a ride on. 12 Hp I/C Quiet model 281707 type 0148-01 with no spark. I've cleaned the flywheel, the coil and bought a new plug. Any thoughts?


Make sure that there is .010-.012 clearance between the flywheel and the coil . As this is a engine that has electronic ignition you do not have to worry about points and condenser. Also check to make sure that the ground wire from the ignition switch to the coil is not shorted out on the frame anywhere.And make sure

Engine will not start, no spark


Try taking of the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use fine sand paper or emery cloth. Then check the spark plug wire for rust (clean if any). Try replacing the spark plug if it is old.

Let me know if this helps.
