I have put a new plug in new gas clean the points and it still won’t catch on. It seems like it’s really rich. Sometimes when you idle it down it will catch for a minute and then die. Any one know a good place to get a carb kit?
Also it this the right plug?
Any one know how to link a video to this post?
An intermittent or bad condenser may test ok depending on what method and meter you are using to test it as under actual usage conditions the AC voltage can peak at about 200 volts as the coil fires, the magnetic field collapses and the resulting series of voltage / current oscillations begin and subside - just an observation I learned the hard way many years ago working on a single cylinder Tecumseh engine with a bad condenser in a small engine shop. As stated, the ignition coil could be incorrect or some of the windings in it may also be damaged / shorted resulting in a weak / intermittent spark - especially under compression. Could also have a bad high tension wire going to the spark plug from the coil or a connection in the primary circuit may be intermittently making contact with ground or opening up. Another possibility is the flywheel key may have sheared which could possibly throw the timing out depending on the type of ignition and what opens and closes the points - crankshaft, camshaft or ?? If you advised what make and model the engine is on the tractor and whether it is magneto or battery ignition it may help others assist you with suggestions. You still have not posted as to whether the problem occurred all at once or if the problem has been getting worse over time as I asked back in post #2 of this thread.Updates I have got the tractor to idl some of the time but when you try to rev it up it just start’s sputtering I have changed the condenser and tested it it’s good I have changed the spark plug it’s good the points are new and set right but it still won’t run
Is there any chance it’s fireing 180 of or is there something else in missing?
