New Points, no spark 620

Recommended Posts

Doh! I replaced the points (and condenser) on my AC 620 Onan engine and now I have no spark at the points and no spark at the plugs. It ran poor before the new points ..... but it did run. Thoughts? Sparkless Steve

Have you tried putting your old condenser back in and seeing if that helps? Also I think I have read previously where someone had no spark and it turned out that the screw connecting the condenser was grounding out on the points case. Maybe one of these could help.

Hi there Sparkless, I have to agree with StanD. because I did it twice myself. Tha darn brass strap has a way of gettin too close to the sides in the pointsbox and grounding out. Good Luck, KOA

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
