Default Re: wisconsin engine

Is your engine magneto fired or battery & coil? If magneto, the points and condenser are in the magneto. It is necessary to remove the magneto end cap to access the points and condenser. Point gap is set at .015" at full seperation.

If battery and coil operation, the points and condenser are in the distributor and it will be necessary to remove the distributer cap. Point gap is .018 - .022"

Unless points are badly burned or corroded might just need to be cleaned with a point file and regapped. If that doesn't produce spark would check or replace the condsener.

If you don't have an Instruction Book and Parts List for the engine would recommend one. Probably find one on ebay at a reasonable price.
