Had a stator burn out on my Honda 3000 recently. Bought a new one and got the unit all back together. But ran across something odd. The key activates the starter and it turns the motor over, but I get no spark and the motor never fires. However, if you pull the cord, it fires right up.

I only see two wires to connect to the starter, and they're both connected. I never unplugged anything from the ignition coil. I cannot find anything else that's unplugged. I have both of the grounds on the harness hooked up to the black and the frame (even tried tying them together).


Is it a bad switch?

I couldn't find specs on gaps, so is my ignition coil too far away from the rotor possibly?

Don't have access to the serial, but it's a Honda eu3000is bought back in like 2005-ish

Have you checked the 20 amp fuse that is inline to the starter. you will find it wired in above the battery

i'll give it a check when I get home. I would think it would stop the starter from operating all together though.

Oh, and the battery is new, cranks it over just like it did before when the key ignition worked.
