  1. glad i could help, i can offer a lil more advice too, that gas tank and carb should be fixable, to clean out the tank put in a handful of nuts and bolts or screws, even small pebbles and shake the living hell out of it, if you can set up some kind of rig to spin it its easier, takes a lil while but will clean the tank out well( make sure to flush it out with some crappy gas or something, the carb should clean up fine though theres supposed to be a screen at the bottom of that  pickup, it should clean up ok by the look of it, what youll most likely find is the fuel pump diaphram(under the square plate with 4 screws) if its all dried up or torn itll never run right without  new one, I had to do one this summer with the exact same tank and carb on an old tiller

  2. I have a question. I have the same engine and has no spark as well. It was running a few hours ago like a champ and now no spark. I'm gunna do the same what you did and I wanted to know if you had the second part of the video to see it done.

  3. so, i watched your video. i have a similar engine 3hp B&S, followed your steps. I got everything off, mine didn't have the points behind the flywheel. where would they be??

  4. question: i have a 3hp B&S and and i have no spark, one wire goes from the coil to the points, one to the sparkplug but i dont know where the third wire has to go.

  5. Great video – I need to change the coil but its an old John Deere 3hp edger Model 80202, any insight as to what coil is still avail to purchase?
