As any of you know that have seen my rebuild thread, I just finished rebuilding my 682 and 44C mower deck. During the rebuild I also rewired the tractor (new schematic can be found here: http://gardentractor...build/?p=286995). Now that it is back together I am not getting any spark.
I can not find any reason this would cause a no spark issues since coil is getting 12v.
Coil tests good according to this:
and to the service manual found here:
Primary resistance: 4.5 Ohms
Secondary resistance: 9600 Ohms
The points are opening and when I put a test light on the coil's negative coil post it flashes on and off as the engine turns over. I pulled the points cover off and they were pretty dirty. By the way, one of the last things I did before tearing it down was pressure wash it... Anyway, I cleaned up the points and ran a piece of fine sand paper between them. Blew them off and put them back on... still nothing. I didn't check the gap since I didn't figure that would have changed since before tear down. After putting the points back on I cranked over the engine and noticed arcing when the points closed is that normal?
Not tested... I don't have an analog multimeter.
They show infinate resistance from the coil end to the plug end... isn't that a problem? The service manual does not show any spec on them.
Now, what am I not checking? What am I missing?
