Mower Ignition Troubleshooting Used on Gas RC

1 min read

Mower ignition is no different than a 1/5 RC; the RC is just smaller. Even if you don’t have a lot of experience with ignition it’s cheap enough to replace where you shouldn’t have to worry much. You can find a new ignition coil easily around the price of $20. Coils can’t be repaired, buy a new one and don’t waste time trying to figure out what happened.

The coil will usually be held on by two bolts; unscrew them and it will slide right off. When trying to test for ignition problems you’ll have a tester that fits between the coil and spark plug. When you pull the starter rope the tester has a light in it that will light up if there’s spark. If it doesn’t light up then you know it’s the coil.

Troubleshooting these small engines is way easier than you think. For some reason we make things so complicated and that’s what creates fear. Don’t be afraid, just have patience. If for some reason you get frustrated take a break, don’t rush.


I have a love for all things toy car-related whether it's Lamborghini toy cars, Corvette C8 toy cars, or big car toys for adults. My specialty is looking for the best deals in the right places.

Vintage toy cars are something that fascinates me. What makes old toy cars worth money? The desire to have the car that you dreamed about as a kid. Having the income to purchase the car now that you've found, imagining the joy that it will bring.

I also love to do home automation in my spare time for fun. I love to consult on all things computers but mostly for family. Technology has always been a passion of mine so I've always studied information systems. I have over 20 years of experience in this function and love it because it's challenging but also rewarding.
