|mf294-4 said: (quoted from post at 23:06:44 08/07/13) What is the value of a condenser for a B&S 8 hp engine? Old one measured .4uf. New old stock measured .2uf. I found a old condenser laying around from something and it measured .45uf. Is the value critical?|
Even though there is an optimum value, they will run with a wide range, for example, I have had engines run with 0.2 micro-Farad up to as much as 55 micro-Farad! Occasionally one will run with no condenser at all, but generally better off with too large than none at all. This post was edited by JMOR at 21:58:56 08/07/13.
