Need Coil for Toro 524

Tecumseh HS50-67074C
Coil is NLA.
It will light a test light but not a plug.
Bad coil or weak magnets?


Anyhow, if I can get it to spark, she is in decent shape otherwise.


Alternative is a Predator 6.5 hp swap.


Thanks,


Kenny in Trumbull Ct.

Just did one last week and a new condensor and filing the points got it up and running. Also don't forget to check all the wires for bare or frayed spots. I have also found the kill wires rubbed through in the past.

There's just one thing I'll guarantee , the best things in life, they sure AIN'T FREE !!

7? Ariens Tractor with rotary mower attachment [Tecumseh HSK100 repower]

Everything is clean and new, still weak spark, not enough to fir a plug.


I have the Echo spark tester and it wont even bridge a .010 gap on the tester so I figure bad coil.


Just an FYI many people think test lights are foolproof. It lights my tester real bright but not enough to fire a plug in air, let alone under compression.

My experiences with older Tec 5hp's would have me leaning to the predator swap if yours is single shaft.

I actually have a 6.5 predator as a donor. Anyone have a link for the shaft adapter sleeve and key so I can use the original 2 groove pulley? Thanks.

I know Dave from the early Voyager and later IHCC Forums (I have 9 IHCC's). Love his Point Savers. I may just give him a call. Thanks.
