3410 No Spark

Recommended Posts

I need your help again. I have 2 problems first after rebuilding my 10 hp B&S I don't have any spark. I've changed the points and condenser, plug. I have enclosed a picture of how I connected the wiring. There is only one wire from the coil other than the plug wire, which I connected to the points wire. I think maybe the coil is bad as I checked the coil wire to ground and there is continuity. I didn't think there should be with the points disconnected. Any help is appreciated.

Second problem is the governor linkage. See the picture below, does that look right to you, I seem to have a spring left over. Anyone got a picture of their governor linkage? Again thanks for any help.

Extra spring that I thought went to governor

It's not grounded where the wires connect, but the black wire coming out of the coil is grounded. If I put a ohm meter on the black wire at the coil and to ground there is continuity, meter reads 0. That is what makes me think the coil may be defective. Thinking of changing to battery ignition, what do you think?
