No Spark Issue Pt.2
Posted June 14, 2012 - 02:51 PM
i am stumped with this one. i need ideas on what to check next. im also thinking it may be a bad safety switch someplace, (oh how i hate those safety switches. ) they are the biggest pain in the butt. i know no one is allowed to say how to bypass the switches tho

so now i need to figure if the new one is bad or the ends are on wrong.
they should be making contact with the wire inside. maybe i take them off and see if i can see the wire.
anyone have any other thoughts?

If it were me, I'd fire it up until it quits, and disconnect the kill altogether. Then see if it regains spark.

this is what i posted earlier today in the ford section:
no more safety switches to worry about and it ran for almost a half hour till it just shut off. when i tried to restart it and pulled the chock out it tried to run. i checked the gas and have plenty in the tank. i think the next thing to replace would be fuel line and filter and maybe ignition switch although the ignition switch worked in the other tractor just fine. anyone have any other ideas?
at least it ran lots longer this time which im real happy about

Dan, i put the new one on with the kill terminal on the top , ill try flippin it over and see what happens. it has to be either the ingition switch or the ignition module since the safety switches are no longer hooked up.

Brian- there is no place to hook a hot wire to. this is a electronic ignition
JDBrian- the only ground wire it has is for the battery. should i run a ground from the motor to the battery?
im starting to think heat related also but not sure where to even start.

Is it possible you're missing a magnet or something not right with gap? I'm starting to grasp at straws here, but you've covered the usual.
You might try burnishing the surfaces where the mag mounts. Both on the mag and on the engine?

took a wire wheel in drill and cleaned all surfaces
im going to put a ground strap on the engine and see what happens.
as for grasping at straws, im to the point ill try anything.
