Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Does engine start? Check the seat switch and the harness to it.
This is Briggs single cylinder engine, the coil and the magnet in the flywheel are all that make the spark, do you have spark at the plug if you remove the spark plug and ground it to the metal f the engine and spin engine with starter? If it has spark, problem is at carburetor. If no spark, unplug the single wire on the coil , and check for spark again, still no spark, with kill wire removed, the coil has failed.
I see question is still open, please rate to close the question and get me credit! Thanks.
