I'm restoreing a 69 AC B10, the magneto went out so i replaced it cost $80 :( anyways the new one has little and very often no spark, i went up to my local repair shop and they wont take the magneto back. my tractor didnt have points on it when i got it but do i need them? i've rewired all my grounds and sanded the block and magneto but still very little spark... the gap was set with a busines card, is that ok? is there anythig i missed :?: [/img][/quote]

It all depends on what type of coil you bought weather or not you need points. The engine you have originally had points. If you're using a point type coil, you need good points and condenser. If the points are bad or condenser is weak, so will be your spark. Every Briggs coil I have bought has had an instruction card that doubles as the gap gauge. As you found out, sanding any rust off the flywheel has absolutely no effect on operation.

Or you could invest in set of "non-magnetic" feeler guages.

I did some looking around and found alot of sources saying for a Briggs engine the air gap should be right around 0.010 of an inch.

Post later how you made out.

The gap may be a bit to wide. The new one should have come with a gauge to gap it with. Try gapping with a piece of printer paper and see if that helps.
I did one years ago around 1997 and they were only $30.00.

i would think printer paper would be to thin, i use to use a matchbook until the guy at the shop said to use a business card. my 10horse is hard to find parts for period. i've alway just swaped magneto's untill my buddy blew his motor up doing so, with this being as rare as it is i didnt want to test my luck... so ive been using number matching parts since.

I wasn't saying it was going to be perfect but to try it ans see how it runs. You can always increase it a sheet at a time until you get good results.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
