Toro/Tecumseh - No Spark
I have yet another mower that needs repaired.
This one was bought NOT working. My brother bought it
in hopes of a cheap fix to make mowing the lawn easier.
It is a self propelled Toro Model# 20018 with a Tecumseh 6.5 Ft/Lb
I've found that is has NO spark. I've removed the kill wire from the Coil and
grounded a known GOOD spark plug. Still NO spark.
So that should mean the "Kill Wire/Switch" is NOT the problem, RIGHT?
(again I'm a shade tree fix'er up'er)
This leads me to believe that the COIL is my problem.
But at $47.50 for a new coil I'd like to be sure it is the problem.
Could it be anything else?
The gap between the Coil/Wheel gap is about as wide as a business card.
Which in my under standing is about right for most mowers.
I did not change the gap, As far as I know the gap has never been change since it left the factory.
Thanks for any help.
