Re: Ignition problem No spark
Roy, yes, I pulled one plug and held it to the engine to provide a ground, then engaged the starter and looked for spark.
AVB, That's concerning that the coils could have been destroyed that way. These are new coils that I just installed, so if that is the problem I have to wonder what I did wrong that allowed that to happen? I can't think of a way that power was applied to them aside from cranking the engine start and the flywheel magneto passing across them. BTW, I agree with you about "just throwing parts" at an engine, but in this case, with the hours I had on this engine I felt a new fuel pump was a good idea. The gas filter is expected but the gas line was dry rotted and bad. The carb was replaced mainly because I wanted new gaskets and they were hard to find solo however for $30 I could get gaskets and the carb...and I was trying to hurry up and get the mower fixed as the grass was getting out of hand. That didn't work out so well and bought a new John Deere zero turn. Trying to get the Husqvarna running again just to sell it. Anyway, the info on the engine is: B&S Intek 24 HP, Model 44R877, Type 0001G1, Code 140825YG. Again, any & all help is very much appreciated. Thanks Roy and AVB!!
