I have a friend who is not online. He has a WC and after it sat for awhile he cannot start it. He has no spark going to the plugs and he thinks it may be a magneto problem. Any help out there?

I have had magneto,s that I thought that the coils were bad and changed coils and still didn,t have spark. I found that a mag setting around get a coating on the points. I use fine sand paper it might not be your problem but worth a try. In a moist condition coils will go bad not being used. The impluse weights will rust fast and catch on the stops also. You never know untill youn get into it

DON'T use sandpaper! It leaves behind grit and can cause points to prematurely burn up. Use a point file and save yourself some trouble. Paul MI WD

I have bought dozens of point files, can't ever find one when I have a point problem. I hear the no sandpaper all the time. I seem to be able to find a small piece of wet and dry 400 easyer than the files. Been using paper for 50 years, can't remember it ever causeing me a problem. Strips of emery paper was used in most of the repair shops back in the 40's for not only points but to take the glase of the generators. It would be best to use the correct tools, but the correct tools are not always at our finger tips and the stubborn tractor is.
