No spark at the plugs.

Postby WJ » Wed Sep 15, 2004 2:54 pm

I am trying to put the mag back on my tractor. I have lots of fire from the coil, but I have nothing at the plug wires. What am I doing wrong??
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

It is out of time.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

IO,

As I just repalced a mag for the first time myself just about a week ago, I went thru the same ordeal. That is, no fire at the plugs. I had a heck of a time getting the timing right :? UNTIL several of our great cubbers on the forum saved me.

Once I did the proceedure correctly, 'ol Ray fired right up.
