finally got a little time to work on my "new" 1650 with K341 engine. I had hope it would be turn the key and go... turned out there is no key, but a push button to engage the starter. turns over fast enough but won't start, checked for spark with both my tester and another plug grounded against the block - no visible spark.
I should know this, but I apparently don't
I have the engine turning over without me in the seat - do I have to be in the seat for the safety to let it "get" spark? I don't know/remember from my previous 1650 if the seat safety keeps it from turning over or just from starting..everything else is in neutral so I figure those safeties are "set" - didn't do much else other than a new spark plug, so I suppose it could be bad points as well
very frustrating since the original idea was to get something that was running and I would have to "mess" with it too much
thanks in advance for any help...
