Ryan, just let the air out of something and fill it back up. We need to see the video.

I was got the compressor out and let the air out of a tire to fill up but when I went to start it it did not run. I pulled the plug and found this.

I tried 2 other plugs and neither sparked. I don't know whats going on with this thing. The wire was on all the way with both plugs. Since I could not take a video, I took a picture to try and keep you from starting a riot.

Kinda, the first problem was me. I didn't put the spark plug on all the way after I finished building the trailer.

Ryan, is that the right plug? The threaded part looks a might long... I'm hoping it is the right one, because the gap isn't very big and I've heard of engine problems caused by that. Hole in the piston stuff.

Do a quick compression test.

Yes it is the correct plug. I took a plug out of another spare compressor and that had the same plug so I don't think they would both be the wrong ones. My dad bought them both new and I don't think he would use the wrong plugs. They are also on a tilt of about 45 degrees, not sure if that makes a difference.

I went out today determined to fix this thing. Some how it has spark now? Not sure why but it works again! If I get a break in the weather I will take a video.

Something more serious has to be going on with this! I had to change some tires today and I was going to take a video. Turned the key and nothing, my heart dropped. I pulled the plug, and this one is broken too! It is broken exactly the same way as the other one, on an angle and at the same spot on the plug. I looked in the book to make sure its the correct plug and it is. I tried another plug and no spark. I will have to get the test light out and see whats going on. Any ideas where to start?
