Mantis tiller no spark
Original Message   Apr 7, 2013 5:21 pm
My Mantis tiller has a Echo SV-4/B engine. I an not getting any spark at all. I replaced the spark plug after setting it to .018. I unplugged the kill switch. Removed the starter and cleaned the flywheel magnets. removed the coil and cleaned the coil ware the magnet from flywheel crosses. Still no spark. The gap between the flywheel and the coil is very close. It is not adjustable. If i buy a coil it is not returnable. If I take it to a shop they will not only charge me labor but $80.00 for a coil. That $80. is almost 1/3 the cost of a hole new unit, not to mention labor. Mantis said the voltage is so small that you will not see or feel a spark . That sounds like crap to me. I took out the spark plug put a screwdriver in the plug wire. and pulled the cord with the kill switch unplugged . I did not even feel a tinkle of spark. Any suggestions?
