I am stumped and I cannot figure it out. I have a 1989 John Deere AMT 626 with a FE290 Kawasaki. I am not getting fire at the plug. I can hook up a inline spark tester and I have fire. I pull the plug and stick it to the side of the block of the engine and no fire. I bought a brand new coil and connector for the plug.

 

 

Any Ideas?

I have looked for a igniter and I can not pin point one for this engine. Yes the coil is brand new and the plug cap. I'd be more than glad to buy the igniter if I can find the part.

Yes, Diesel1050 is right!  It's the igniter.  I have a Deere AMT626 and torn a few of them apart, including the FE290D engine and that's the issue.  It's a little (about 1" by 1") silver box that sits on the governor/throttle arm assembly with one flat prong on it for the wire to plug onto.

Jeeze!  That's expensive for that little part...........probably just because it's green and yellow with a picture of a Deer on it, ugh!

 

Let us know if it works.  I didn't even think the igniter would be available still.

So far.. No good. I actually had to recharge the battery due to the excessive cranking. At this point and time I'm take the carb off and see if there is something I missed. I put a brand new fuel pump, gas line, filter, coil, spark plug, plug cap, igniter, battery and cleaned the carb 3 times. There's something I'm missing.

No spark correct, then the ignition relay needs to be checked, it supplies power to the ignition system.

Good news. There was a plastic piece under the old igniter so I left it there. More than likely the igniter has to be grounded or else it won't work. I took the plastic piece out and it fired right up. Now for some reason the thing is flooding itself out.

I have another question for all of you. I am looking to buy a new Carb for my the AMT. On ebay there is some that's 18-80 bucks. What's the main difference between all of them?
