Shouldn't be any problems with timing unless you changed it, or something is hanging up?? Since you are in there, it wouldn't hurt to check it tho.
Which engine is this?
Engine Is WisconsinS8D..
Okay.. here is the long story... I was pleasantly surised when it fired right up on 1st attempt after re-wire and tank cleaning. I need to adjust throttle cable yet but ran her around the yard for a few minutes before she died.
I used muriatic acid and some 1/4" nuts to clean the tank. Let it set for a few hours while occasionaly rolling it back and forth/ side to side. Drained acid and flushed with water several times, followed by blowing out with air and then spraying Marvel Mystery oil in tank...enough to coat the interior. I also cleaned fuel elbow on bottom of tank and installed new fuel hoses and an inline filter. The first time or two it died I pulled fuel line from carb and barely a dribble came out. Gas was bubbling in the filter, like it was boiling, but it wasnt that hot. When I pulled line off of carb the bubbling stopped. Let it set for a bit and it fired up again...for a short time, then died.
Had to leave for a few hours and started working on it when we got back only to find no spark issue....
I am thinking of pulling the tank and hoses again to double check for blockages, but have been concentrating 1st on why no spark all of a sudden. I have power from coil to the points. When I mess with the points with key in run position, I do get some minor sparking between the contacts. The condensor shows signs of light corrosion on it's case. Installed another condensor I had from a Simpolicity parts tractor. and still no spark.
Soooo, thats where I'm at to date..
