Well I can tell you this. I assured the gaps were right between the flywheel and coils, stuck a bolt in the lead, cranked it over, and it didn't go so well. At 1/4" it wouldn't arc at all, it had to be more like 1/8" or closer to arc. This was with the kill wire pulled off.
I've got 2 new coils...
so i pulled the flywheel. i pulled the stator as well. the key was still intact and the stator showed no signs of damage, just a little dirty. i also put new plugs in it. i went ahead and took some emery cloth to both coils and the coil on the flywheel. still nothing. i did notice though, the...
i have not got around to pulling the flywheel yet but i was wondering. is there any safety interlocks that would keep it from firing? The parking brakes have to be engaged for it to turn over and the same goes for the PTO, it must be disengaged or it wont crank. anything else you could think of?
I tried disconnecting them and starting them, not grounded to anything. I also grounded 1 to the negative battery terminal.
The fuel solenoid, it's just unplugged and removed completely from the carb. Might be why its backfiring.
Disconnected them and I cranked the hell out of it. Holy mother of god. After about 5 mins of cranking it just backfired out the exhaust with a 3ft flame. I think I'm deaf now. I had the choke fully on so it must of filled with gas and finally fired.
But why wouldn't it keep running? The air...
Took them out and held them bout 1/4" away from a ground. Didn't arc. Both plugs.
It had to be pretty darn close to arc to ground.
I'm going to replace the plugs but I doubt they're bad. I just put them in. Where should I start after plugs? The coils?
Sorry for the prolonged response. Holidays have been crazy. Hope everyone had good holidays.
So I checked the valve lash. It was good. I pulled the carb apart and it was spotless. Also I tried spraying starting fluid directly into the intake. Still nothing
As for the spec number, there was no...
