Re: Tecumseh no spark
I have experienced this same problem a lot with replacement ignition coils on almost every brand of equipment out there. Case in point: A Craftsman generator with 5hp Tecumseh, did everything you did, plus replacing the flywheel with the same result, no spark. Eventually, I found a working coil on a junk Tecumseh and cured the problem. I am finding that every replacement coil is defective. Now the problem here is that once you install any electrical component, they will not under any circumstances replace or reimburse you for it. My conclusion (my own) is that this is a conscious, planned deliberate program to force sales of new equipment. My own cure is that when I find any junk equipment with a functioning ignition coil, I cannibalize it for later. The problem is that there are so many different styles of these things. Anyone else out there finding dead coils right out of the box?
