    Jerr, Lowes tells me this model has no kill switch. They suspect its electrical. Had another guy tell me it's probably the seat sensor, but that walking me thru the fix would be too hard by email and would require an on site visit. Thanks. -Joe

Of course it has a kill switch, how would you shut down the engine? Do you have a model number for this equipment/engine?

No spark on my MTD Snowblower


ake sure your Kill wire that is hooked to your on/off linkage did'nt come off and is permanately grounded, or if it has a key switch ,make sure that it is not faulty, all else fails you are probably looking at a coil being bad. once you get the shroud off unhook the small wire coming from the coil and then roll over eng and see if there is spark then, if not it is bad coil.

No spark


Eigther the kill switch failed or ignition module. Disconnect wire to kill switch if you get spark then switch is bad. Still no spark with kill wire disconnected ignition module quit.

Eager ****** gas line trimmer will not start no spark at plug


The best test for an ignition coil is removing the wires going to the kill switch at the coil. Most small engines will run with the kill circuit open & stop when you ground it. If you disconnect the kill wire & you have no spark, than it's a coil.. If you do have spark, check the switch & kill wire for a possible short.

Bolens is now owned by MTD. Find parts for your machine at http://www.bolens.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/topcategory_10151_15953_-1 or your local MTD/Bolens dealer

The bigger challenge you will have is getting the engine running again unless you have maintained it the past 7 years. My free advice is get the motor running and make sure the tractor still functions before you start adding accessories. Once you have driven it around the block once or twice, then get the parts you need to operate the deck. I think these parts will be a little pricy.

I say these things because of a similar experience with a International Cub I got. I spent a lot of money to get the mower running before I got the tractor running, reliably. I didnt get my fair value from my $ as a result. I then bought a geenuine Troy and have never looked back. (MTD owns the Troy brand now also.)

Good luck with your project

is the fuel filter clogged? you may need to check the engine compression for bad valves or rings.if the compresion is off it wont get gas . check the fuel filter first though and keep me posted.
