Question about Garden
Hi yes magnetron coils can do this
but 1st check that you dont have tight valve clearances
they should be 0.003 thou inlet and 0.005 thou exhaust
if your machine it getting hot and shutting down and you have too wait for it to cool coils maybe going o/circuit
the way to test is to run engine untill this happens and fit in line spark tester between ht lead and plug then try retarting if no spark in the tester window- possible diodes in harness could be faulty
remove blower cover and pull wires that go to each magnetron coil this isolates diodes from coils and retest if still no spark when hot then magnetron coils faulty when hot
your local shop should be able to source magnetron coils either second hand - tested or aftermarket be sure to give them b/s model and type numbers and date code off engine to get correct part
here is web site for parts breakdown-:
just enter model and type numbers and download a manual / parts list
hope it helps
