Re: O/T Briggs & Stratton Magneto Help
I got the mower all put together, and it even works [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Fortunately I found the wire diagram for the 6 prong ignition switch. Turns out my stepdad installed the new ignition switch, and it wouldnt start, so he started to jump the terminals on teh back of the switch, and put power to the ground terminal that lead to the magneto (ouch!!)
So I replaced that and the solinod turned out to be bad, and also the ceramic thing. The ceramic thing was a fuse of some sort, the tech at the lawn mower place igot my parts from said repalce it with a blade type auto fuse and i am set. So Everything got put together, and she cranked up and ran just fine. The wife was laughing at me because i was doing figure eights in the backyard, and not even cutting the grass. So I got my self a free lawnmpwer. Now I just need a house to have a lawn to mow. Oh well.
Thanks for the help!!!
