Problem with ground wire on a craftsman engine on an old tiller.


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem finding where the wire should connect. The ground wire is connected to the magneto on one end and to the engine control on the other. I have posted an image below that shows where it connects to the control. As long as the bare part of the wire is not touching metal, the engine should have spark. If the engine des not have spark I recommend removing the starter to access the magneto. Then remove the kill wire from the magneto and check for spark. If you still do not have spark I suspect the magneto is defective.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair.
