    I have an old plate tamper with a Wisconsin Robin engine. Been a great unit just can't get a spark. I'm sure it needs a new coil. Can't find one anywhere..... Wisconsin Robin W1-145 MF311031
    Spec# CS1400

    Appreciate any help, hate to throw out a good motor for a coil.:mad:

    Thanks John, I'll give them a try. In a pinch I have a honda on a old spreader (that can't seem to sell) that'll fit.

    Hi again. So I need to know it it has a brake or not. I have located the 2 part numbers for them and have a diagam with every part for your motor.

    Here is that diagram, and parts list
    http://www.jackssmallengines.com/pdf_documents/Robin engines/Manuals/WR-W1-145V_185V.pdf

    The ignition diagram is on 26 and the parts numbers are on 27. Hope this helps

    Did you happen to check out that 2nd site I posted? are you hoping to be able to order this part online. I looked at the pictures and I think that second site may work.
