Was given this mower last year. It ran, but was then left outside until this month. Tried to start, but did not fire.Cleaned and re-adjusted the ACT13-3 carburetor,renewd bowl and inlet gasket. Visually checked the magneto, contacts looked clean, magnetism on removable section of the flywheel ok,but no spark on plug or on contacts. I assume the coil is at fault.
Can anyone help with advice or point me in the direction of a replacment coil wiht contacts. Plenty of other magnetos on ebay and lawnmower club site, but not one with contacts.
there is a cut out switch usually a black wire connected to a terminal, which some times gets grass or water on it, thus making a short.
make sure it is clean, should get you running again
Many thanks,i had seen that one. After a litttle more research I think i have found the identical coil. It is a Villiers produced part, although the Wipac 3 pole unit will also fit.
Once again, many thnaks for taking the trouble to reply.
Is this any good?
