Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Are you using an inline spark tester, to check for spark?
I am back.
I will use the numbers you posted, to pull up a diagram of your engine.
Have you checked the contacts on your points?
I would like to confirm something. Was your engine running before you stopped using it, two years ago?
You stated that you are getting power to both sides of your coil.
I would like to do some troubleshooting.
I would like for you to check to see if you are getting 12 volts to your coil (+) terminal, when your ignition switch in on position, then check again when your ignition switch is in start position.
Thanks for checking.
One side of your coil is ground. We need to determine why you are getting voltage on the negative side.
You are correct ...
Do you have some emery cloth?
Thanks for this information. If you manually open and close your points with a screwdriver, do you get an arc?
It has been a while since I have personally worked on a 12 volt ignition system. I am sure I am missing something that is causing our problem. If you like, I can opt out, to give another expert an opportunity to work with you.
Your satisfaction is very important to me.
No problem. I do hope all goes well for you.
