Ok, this little brute has a 5 go B&S. Some tiny gear box. Flat tires(the two that are not plastic. Motor has no spark. Was stuck. After a can of PB its free and clear. Motor turns, blades will move and the rear/ drive wheels turn in neutral. First question, spark. How do I know if it’s the key switch or the other component that has the spark plug wire connected to it think it’s called a magneto or ignition coil? Next, shouldn’t I be able to move the wheels with it in forward or reverse position? The wheels are off the ground and by turning the motor with a wrench on the flywheel/ ratcheting pull start ... thingy shouldn’t the wheels turn? Has a belt that runs to gear box with chain/ sprocket from box to rear axle. Also what is the motor for ordering the needed parts? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If your ever in central NC I’ll invite you over to look it over and cook chicken Alfredo!!
