New mule help

Post by Its me » Tue Sep 12, 2017 6:22 am

Hi all,

I got a new mule which has sat in the states for a year waiting to be shipped and it was a runner but now sadly there is no spark. It is a pull start model. Have you got any pointers for me. I'm guessing magneto but how hard is it to remove and time up again?

There is probably corrosion on the grounding points on the inside of the magneto. Look back through the forums, there are several discussions on how to clean the magneto. For timing, Bill Watson's tips are still the best.

Here are a few to look at:
