Moisture inside the distributor cap. Remove the distributor cap and dry out the interior.firetech wrote:I did get a nice blue arc to the oil canister with every crank. I did have the ignition wire disconnected from the mag housing during the test.
Also my cub has been exposed to rain for couple days while at camp. What am I missing?

I tested spark right at spark plug and I'm getting spark right at the plug. I guess I must have carb problems? I did clean the carb making sure jet was clear and everything seemed in order but is there something I could be missing?

Condensation in the carb is a good way to provide a no start situation. Plugs don't fire too well on water.firetech wrote:I am getting what looks like gas spilling from carb when trying to start it.
Flooding it. Let it dry out a bit.
Check for condensation - sometimes visible on the side of the carb. Usually it is apparent when you take the carb apart. A whitish deposit will be present in the bowl indicating that water has sat in it for a bit (provided it was long enough). Yeah, been through this with Ellie this year. She sat for 6 months before I could get to her.

Yup. Give it some time. I don't think there is anything seriously wrong since the tractor was running 5 days previous.lazyuniondriver wrote:Give it a week or two, you'll get the urge to tinker with it again, not wanting to let a simple machine get the best of you.
