    lincoln weldanpower 225AC/210DC/6 welder ignition problem

    I'm trying to make contact with duaneb55 for help with this. This Briggs engine doesn't have any #s stamped in the fan shroud that I can see, however it has gotten a dupont overhaul at some point. Tomorrow I'll pressure wash the inside to see if there's any evidence of the #s I can see from there. Anyway, w/o knowing the air gap between the new mag and flywheel magnet I made sure the mag is mounted properly and set the gap at .020", sanded the points and set them at .020", I checked the points with my ohmmeter to make certain they're making contact, removed the condenser which tests good, disconnected the kill wire from the mag. The points close when the magnet is centered under the mag. I can crank it over with the starter while holding the plug wire and my hand touching the head and just get enough shock to feel it. I haven't tried reinstalling the condenser yet, I'll try that tomorrow.
    Any ideas of where to go from here?
    TIA,

    Hi Mike. Typical air gap on the mag coil is approximately half your current setting at .010-.014".

    You definetly need the condenser in the picture but you could just be looking at a bad coil.

    Thanks, Duane. I'll put the condenser back in today. The coil is new and reads infinity between the small wire and frame of the condenser.

    Well, Duane, you were right about the coil. I had to cobble an extension for the plug wire on the old coil. Reinstalled it and boom, we have a spark!! The new one was a bum right out the gate. It brings back the old line about assuming something new will work. I reinstalled the condenser also before trying it. Anyway it starts and runs well, will light up a 1/8" 6010 and the batt charge is even working. Got it delivered back to my friend's house so when he gets back home he'll be a happy camper.

    Bummer on the new coil. Made in China perhaps?

    Good to know you got to the bottom solved the problem for sure.
