Photo TORO Eiseman 71t

I have a Toro engine with a dead Eiseman 71t. I pulled the flywheel tonight and found the inside covered with some kind of crud. Almost like it has melted plastic all over it. This is contained only inside the mag assembly and the inside of the flywheel. I'm not sure what to make of it. Normal?

Looks like compressed baked organic material infused with oil seepage and exposed to a lot of engine heat. Basically crud. Might try oven cleaner on it.

Chances are the coil is cooked. They leak that nasty goo when they are going bad.

For my 2 cents worth the mess has come from outside of the magneto area and not the coil. If it was from the coil the mess would have started at the coil and dripped downwards from there. There is evidence that the mess has come in from that joint in the alloy housing, possibly oil spillage or a leak. Clean it up using a degreaser and try again. Protect your coil from the degreaser and water as much as possible just to be on the safe side.
