Ignition for a 191700 Briggs

Recommended Posts

Guest
Help! In troubleshooting no spark in my 738 Broadmoor, I found my engine had no contact points. Apparently this engine has solid state ignition and I will have to get some new Briggs books to cover it. All I see to the coil is one wire to a junction block on the side of the engine and on to the ign switch and the plug wire. The first wire had shorted to the block and I fixed that but still no fire at the plug. Question: Is the wire I fixed the engine stop wire or was it supplying power to the coil from the battery? With this wire disconnected and open there is absolutely nothing from the coil when cranked at 500 rpm. It shows zero resistance to ground with a good meter. Do I need a new coil or should I reconnect the wire and look for a blown fuse or other open? Perplexed

That would be the ground wire you fixed - with it removed and still no spark its time for a replacement (part no. 299811) as long as the flywheel magnet is OK. Air gap is .010-.015.
