Cracked Coils (Pics)

9 posts in this topic

I posted this on the St. Cloud Area forum and didn't get a response. Maybe some more people on this forum can point me in the right direction. I know of a used parts dealer in the cities (Shokepee) that could help me out but was looking for something closer. Any help would be appreciated.

The motor starts but doesn't keep running and it has a lot of fuel like it is flooding. I think that it might have to do that the coils are cracked and their isn't a good consistant spark? Any other signs of what cracked coils might be doing to my motor?

So I am for sure looking for two coils (used but operational) for a '76 Johnson (15R76A)(Part number #0581407). I can't get her to keep running and I have two large cracks running down both of the coils. I don't want to pay top dollar in case that isn't the problem, USED would work just fine. Thanks

Here are some pics.

Thanks,

Minners

If you have an opportunity to run it in the dark with out the hood, you will see spark jump out to ground.

Have you checked the compression? kinda looks like its been hot before.

Haven't checked compression. Although just pulling it over it still "bumps" along as though it still has decent compression. What would cause you to believe that it was hot before? Just wondering. I figured that the spark would be running down the side of the plugs and that is what casued the burned black underneath them. Would there be more indications if she cooked?

Thanks

The discoloration or the spots that appear to be burned. I'm not saying that I'm sure it has cooked, but when I see something like that, the first thing I like to do is a compression test. Use a good compression tester to check compression.

Have you done a compression test and verified that you have a spark problem, or checked for spark right after it dies?

I had a '74 Evinrude 15hp (very similar to this model) I sold to a friend, and I had noticed that a spark jumped from the rubber spark plug cap to the engine block. Because of this, the engine would not run!

I took the rubber plug cap off the wire and placed the wire to the plug directly...no more jumping spark, and engine ran. Can you explain that?

Maybe see if yours is acting this way minners?

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
