So on saturday i went to start my 70. Flipped the switch, turned the key and a HUGE spark came out the front. went to try again after making sure its not on fire, and nothing. Once and a while it will make a ticking noise. i dont know what it could be. Starter? We have a car coil up front but i dont think that would have done it and now it dosent roll over?

 

I dont know what to do so ill blame it on Bolens Qt-17 since he was there. hehe. :poke:

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

  One thing to check is run a jumper cable from starter housing to the neg batt post to insure the starter is grounding good.

Did you check the rectifier to see if the fuses are blown? It's located on the right hand side of the motor, just in front of the oil fill tube and oil drain plug.

Yep you don't ever want to put a charger on it and try to start without pulling fuse it can be trouble.
