Default 3 wheel ez go 244cc robin engine no spark

I just picked up this cart and it has no spark and will only turn over if u cross the solenoid over. I replaced the fuse because it was blown and thought that might fix it but still no spark. Any ideas? wires all look good. And what model or year is it?I found the vin number but it comes up as a 94 ezgo electric 4 wheel cart so im stumped

I am currently working on the same engine. I would check the points and condenser. I was not getting any spark either. Make sure you clean up all contacts and that you have a good ground. Hope this helps ya!

Ok will do. I will let you know how it goes. Now correct me if im wrong but are the points and condesor external on this type of engine? Theres this little box with wires coming from the motor going to it and then wires coming out of it going to the ignition coil.

check that you are getting power to the coil when the engine is turning over (put a dmm on the coil + and - then turn the key on and press the pedal til the engine turns over) - on the 2PG (mine anyhow) the coil has no points or condenser - if there's voltage to the coil then it's probably faulty, if not, then you'll have to backtrace to see where the juice is stopping

ok i tested the power coming out of the red wire that comes out of the motor and theres plenty there but get this. After that everything grounds out. Lets say i put the dmm on the coils blue and yellow wire then put it on the chassie it completes a circuit. Im really confused into why this is all grounding out. It grounds out at the little box thingy with the coil looking things in it.{sorry never seen anything like it so i dont know what its called.} Any sugestions? I tested the key switch and the peddle switch and both are good. Also the machine will not turn over by pushing the peddle. I half to cross the solenoid over

I have a 1979 3-wheel cart, the motor is a 244cc 2-stroke. The points and condenser on my engine are located under the flywheel. internal starter n generator. If it is close to the same year you should have 2 black boxes. 1 being the regulator and the other being the blocking relay 1 of your wires should be running from this box to the positive contact on the coil. do a search on wiring schematic for 1979 ez go the model shown is for a 77 but it is modified to suit the wiring on a 1979.

Ok so i took the flywheel cover off so i could look at the points. I was thinking they might be stuck. But there not. But while im right here whats the gap suppose to be on them? EDIT { yes mine has those 2 black boxes so it must be about the same year}

Is your engine a 2pg or a 3pg year would help. in 1993 they came out with the 244cc 3pg which has the external starter n generator. gap is suppose to be on used .013 and new .015

mine has internal generator and starter and points are the ones that were in it when i got it im not changing them at this time. Im just checking everything over trying to figure out my no spark issue. So even on my old 2pg engine i set the gap to .013?
