Hi, mower died while mowing yesterday. I've assertained there is no spark so pulled the engine, cleaned terminals to coil and checked module was earthed, still no spark. Replaced module and still no spark. Could it be stop switch in the carby? Where should the two pins be at? Could I have a copy of the carb manual if available? Thanks in advance. Jason

precision,

Carby manual is available under workshop manuals and parts list area.

What you need to do is remove one of the wires from the carby and check for spark using a new spark plug. If you get spark then it is the wires in the carby touching each other. cheers2

Thanks Bruce, is this the workshop manual area you talk of as I don't seem to have access?

https://www.outdoorking-forum.com.au/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/postlist/Board/36/page/1

I tried removing one of the wires and using a new plug but still no spark. What resistance should the coil have across it? Thanks

precision,

I would be looking at the module first as the coils very rarely fault. What colour is you module silver of gold? rolleyes

victa man, the old module was gold the new one silver but no spark with either. Do you know the resistance of the coil? Is it possible to have the carb diagram emailed to me? Thanks again.

precision,

We don't email parts list as they are listed under parts list and manuals area. As to the resistance I don't have those details but I want you to check a couple of other things as well.

1. Did you clean the magnets on the flywheel?

2. Did you remove the coil and clean the contact points?

Try this and see if you get any spark. rolleyes

Adnan,

You need the blade plate on as it is your flywheel. Otherwise you will get the rope pulling out of your hand if it does spark. cheers2

I am getting mixed up and thinking the blade plate is the thing on the bottom where the blades are attached too. If i pull the pullstart the flywheel spins

Adnan,

The blade plate is the counter weight(not Flywheel) my error sorry.

It keeps the timing right because if you take it off the the motor is out of balance throwing the timing out. cheers2

Hi all,

A couple of things i would look at, take the spark plug cover off (probably orange) the high tension lead and make sure the screw in the end has no rust and is making good contact with the wire in the lead. When checking for spark make sure the plug is in contact with the screw when the cover is pushed on.

Check the air gap between the coil and the flywheel magnets should be around 0.25mm.

Take the earth wire out of the carby, also check and make sure these wires don't have the copper wire itself showing and are touching on the body or engine, if its an earth wire thats ok. This also applies to the high tension wire make sure it has no cuts in it that go to the copper or the spark will jump here instead of the plug.

Just a few things i would check before changing coils and modules
