Winco - 205BS-IM, Briggs problem.

Hi Guys,

I was given an old Winco Generator that has a Briggs 233431 series engine.

The big thing I'm missing right now is spark. I cleaned the points, grabbed a new plug but nothing. Now the obvious place to start would be new points and a condenser but I didn't have those things on hand so I thought I would make sure there wasn't anything funky going on with the coil so I removed the housing to take a peak. The thing I noticed is the flywheel doesn't seem to have any magnetism what so ever.

I don't play with small engines all that much (not that this thing is all that small!) but that doesn't seem right at all. I know when I've worked on similar engines before the flywheel would at least grab a screw driver.

Can these guys loose their magnetism?

Yes, they can go bad. Be sure you are touching the magnets themselves and not just anywhere on the flywheel. If that is the case, then here is one I found on ebay.
