I have already fixed these two. Fuel related issues, just clean out carbs and put 'good' gas in them.

This one is causing some headache. Older Longlife 5 HP B&S, model 130202, type 0523 01, serial 79103195. Can't get any spark. Changed plug, cleaned rust from flywheel, reset magneto. Pulled flywheel, has new key. Changed to new points and condensor, setting points to .020. By the way, the service manual for these (270962) has no info on the points at all. I think the magneto is bad, some lamination's are loose. The plunger for the points is working.

You could check to make sure the magnet on the flywheel still has a magnetic effect on a piece of steel if not already verified - just a thought.

I have that 5 hp vertical brigs that was given to me, model 130900. Not sure if the magneto off it will fit yours.

Bet it would. A new one is around $35-40.

It sucked the mag down to it when I reset the gap, so I think that is not and issue.

Let's see what you come up with. I don't have too much problem tearing that engine apart, I'll need to scrap the block afterwards. Carb, gas tank, pull starter can be saved. All are good.

From what I can see if it has points it would work. I'll talk to the owner tomorrow and see what he wants to do.

I think it is old enough to have points. Never tore it down, but got it running just fine. Here is the cover of the manual for it.

If it's still running, keep it that way. I can buy parts.

Yes, still runs. Was thinking of making an inverter generator with it, but I need a "round tuit" for this project.

Put a magnetron coil on it if it's a single magnet flywheel with the correct polarity. You can check the magnet polarity with a Compuss. If the magnet pulls the compuss needle South then you CAN use a Magnetron coil If it pulls North you either have to have the flywheel repolerized or use a new Points coil.

 

 

 

 

Magnetron ignition coil that will work on it is B&S part number 397358

 

Bunch on Ebay for $15-20

That's the # I get for a coil, but there is no mention of the points! What do you do with them?

Just clip the wire off and let the points in there so oil doesn't leak out the plunger hole.Or JB weld the plunger hole shut and save the points and condensor for another engine.

 

397358 is the magnetron coil part number

298968 is the old Points coil part number

Well, the owner says he may have a magneto, so he took that tiller home. But he brought these to replace it.

Yes that's a JD tiller. The last pic is a DR mower.  

 

My son needs a new push mower so I drug a big wheel out. Pulled the rope to see what would happen. Turned over decent, so I pulled the plug and squirted some carb cleaner in it. Tried to fire, so now it was on to fuel. Tank was half full of water and this is what the carb looked like.

Had to strip another carb from one that wouldn't turn over well. But it was pretty clean inside. Put it on and we have a running mower. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:
