Question about Homelite Garden
Check the magneto for spark. Remove the plug and reinsert the wire and hold it against the engine as you pull the starter. You should get a nice, blue spark. If you don't see one, the magneto to flywheel air gap may need adjusting or the coil module is bad (rare). You basically need good compression, fresh fuel, good clean air intake, and a strong spark to get it to "pop." I realize you may know these things, but, most people are unaware of the .010"-014" air gap required between the magnets on the flywheel and the legs on the coil module. Disassembly is required to get to it and you take the same steps you would if you wanted to fix the pull rope. A standard business card has about the proper clearance needed between the aformementioned parts. Post back if needed. I am here to help.
