B-10 key blowing sparks!!

Recommended Posts

Your problem could be a bad ingition switch. Does the engine turn over normally? Engine shut off is accomplished by appling a grd to points side of the coil. Try disconnecting the switch at the points cover junction block if eng runs you'll have to shut off by choking or applying a grd to the points where the ingition switch was connected. Good luck!

I have a 9 hp landlord that sparks at the ignition switch when I turn it off,it sounds as though the key switch is worn but isn't getting enough ground to kill the engine while in the on position.Disconnect the kill wire at the points box ,start the engine and see if it sparks,I'll bet it won't.with the key on touch the kill wire to the points and see if you get the sparks,it shouldn't.

      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
