So, not knowing what that looked like I googled it. I came across this thread.

I tested the coil the way they indicated in post #10. I disconnected all wires from it and here's what happened (also the top, just didn't photograph it):

You have 0 ohms between the + and - of the coil? That implies it got cooked from too much power.

Yes. I'm thinking when I turned the starter when the engine was already running I caused a power surge that fried it...???

I've replaced it.

Started right up. No hesitation. No r-r-r-r.

Yay!!!!!!!!!!


Thank you so much, guys!

Yay yay yay yay yay!!!

Congrats! It sure was a strange one. I wonder how many volts that starter put out when it got spun up by the flywheel. Every other time I have seen this, it blew the fuse link first, but then I didn't ever see an ignition fuse link on yours.

I'm very curious, too, as to the details of the power surge. I think I'm going to investigate.

I wonder...should I install a fuselink? I don't know what it looks like (will Google). But that's what guides are for, right? To stop a surge?

I'm glad we solved it relatively quickly. I mean, someone with more experience than I probably would've figured it out in an hour or so. I was doing the back and forth with you guys - following instruction, posting, waiting, repeat. But I'm glad we figured it out.

Now I can drive her. And my son asked if we can name her Josephine instead of Marge, so Josie it is.

Thanks, again!

I play with microhydro (Water wheel)setups and a DC motor can work 2 ways. Put power to it and it spins. Spin it and it gives power out.

Some folks use record turntable motors (DC) and spin them with a water wheel to get a trickle charge for a battery pack to help charge them. They give a couple amps 24/7 which is good for a weekend use camp power.

A starter spun up real fast like that by a flywheel, likely put out a lot of power in a hurry. Well, enough to cook the insulation of the coils windings anyway.

Yay! That was almost like a choose your own adventure book "Turn to page 4 if you want to check your fuel flow. Turn to page 6 to check your spark." I'm glad you got it figured out. Enjoy your 5!
