I have a 5HP Briggs on my Mow-N-Vac and has been running

Customer Question

I have a 5HP Briggs on my Mow-N-Vac and has been running fine but when I recently went to unload, when I finished unloading, I couldn't start it back up. Seems like no spark. Got a new plug, set the gap at .30 and still won't fire. Air cleaner seems fine, just won't fire. Can you help me? Leaves are getting deep!!!

Are you familiar with checking for spark to your spark plug? We need to determine if our problem is fuel related, or ignition related. We can continue from here. Thanks!
