I picked up an old Jacobsen reel mower believe it’s a 1954 mower if someone could confirm that would be awesome.
I’m having troubles getting it running
Apparently it ran 2 years ago
I’ve drained fuel
New spark plug
Cleaned out fuel pickup straw
I’m not sure I’m getting spark I can’t see one but if I hold a finger on the plug while pulling the cord I sure feel one lol
I had to re solder all the coil connections maybe this has something to do with it.
Any suggestions would be awesome
Any manuals anyone can point me at or any info on my mower
Thanks a bunch
I would pull the plug and put a few drops of gasoline in the cylinder and put plug back in and give it another try...although I would think that sufficient spark would blow you out of your socks if you had your finger on it while pulling the recoil
