HI Ken, my name is Kenny
Well Ken its not that easy, meaning there are other components in the ignition system that can cause a certain cylinder not to fire. So first off you'll need a multi-meter to do some resistance checks, and also which cylinder is it ? starting at the front of the engine that cylinder would be considered #1 middle #2 and the rear #3 ?
Let me know on the meter and I can work you up a work sheet (including the coil) to check the various components
Also I need to know if it has a Fuji engine or a Polaris engine, I believe you'll find a tag on the front of the engine towards the front engine cover. If you have a HIN hull number I can likely look it up from that
OK good, do you have a meter to check some of the components ?
and you are sure this is an 1994 ?
Do you want me to work up a worksheet for you to check the stator and then for the coils, not sure where you are located, but if you have any Harbor Freight tool store they have a meter there for about $7 or Walmart carries a cheap meter also ?
OK have Great day !
Thanks anyway !
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, the simplest approach would be to temporarily swap the #3 non-firing cylinder's ignition coil/spark plug wire with either of the other 2 known to be good.
As posted above by Kenny, the preferred method is to use a multi-meter to check for resistances both of the spark plug wire and the primary & secondary winding inside the ignition coil.
