Well i havent installed the electric fuel pump but i got to thinking, if the pump is bad the fuel line would have no fuel in it at the carb, but it does, did some checking i do not have spark on both plugs, i measured the coil and its 2.2 ohms that seems good i think. I wont if its the kill switch or something. Which wire is that or how do i check
It could be the points.
Heres the manuals for the jlo 2 stroke.
I think its a stuck point but i am not sure, replace or unstick it? I dont think there is a place in town that sells jlo stuff. Napa, oreilys, advance auto, polaris, and harley
Heres some info.
If you google jlo ignition points you will find a set online for under $10
with short space to work in i thiink i am going to pull the motor and look at stuff, however i dont have much time to do things so i am thinking about ordering some things such as points and a condenser. that ya think
pulled the motor and put in a place i can work it. checked the points and they look good, gap is around .010 i think as i am new to feeler gauges. spec is .014 to .018. i will adjust the point gap to spec. can i check spark by turning the motor by hand on the bench to make sure it works? if so how do i hook the postitve on the battery to check the spark? also if this is not the problem how do i check out the condenser? also a link on how to take off the cvt clutch would be nice i havent looked for one yet but i'll look later. i will check out the coils as well but they should be fine.
thanks for help its a slow project now but next week i am on vacation and want to bust this thing out for the weekend, planning on going to the cat house.
What colour are the wires on the plug from the engine?
It looks like you have a magneto ignition.
No battery needed to start it.
Yes you can check for spark with the plugs out and pulling the cord.
2 yellow wires are ac volts to the rectifier.
2 black wires when shorted together by the ignition switch kills the spark.
Brown wire is grounded
Blue with yellow stripe fires coil 1
Blue fires coil 2
If you have electric start you need a battery to turn the starter....lol
I am at work atm but that sounds right for the wires. I have no recoil starter but i can just use jumper cables on the starter to start it. One thing i do need to know is do i need carb and fuel/oil mix hooked up to test spark? My thought is with no fuel there is no lube and i dont want to buy a new motor.
No...it only takes a couple cranks to test for spark.

Found a problem, one wire on one condenser is broken off, but i do not have spark on both cyl. Could a broken wire cause no spark on both? also this condenser only has one wire to it while the other has two.
