Qualcast 35s mower - no spark

hello there,

my dad has a Qualcast 35s petrol mower and has a problem - no spark!

he's had the mower from new for almost 20 years and enjoyed almost trouble free mowing - til now!

working back, he's changed the spark plug, and now is looking to change the ignition coil - however, we cannot pin the thing down.

we cannot find an engine serial number or specific type but so far we've determined that the engine is a tecumseh AQ148 E-45520E.

there are lots of coils out there on ebay amazon etc. with part numbers which we can't relate to our engine.

i've attached a few pictures which may help

any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is an AQ148. Before you

It is an AQ148. Before you condemn the coil unplug the green kill wire from the coil - if it’s the same as the one that I have, it’s just a push on “ Lucar” type connector and try again. Just be aware the with that wire disconnected it will have to be stopped with the choke or pulling the plug lead off.

EDIT    I believe that the ignition coil that you may need is part number 14160034 - but check !
