Wright Reciprocating Saw


Wright Reciprocating saw. I have a wright model B 520 I rebuilt the carb and had weak spark so installed new points and condenser within point setting at .025 gap now have no spark. I didn't change timing. So did do wrong?? I know about throttle setting to get spark. Any help would be appreciated. Cabin1

Welcome to STAK...…. :)
I moved your question to a better forum for answers.


Some new points have a coating on them and need to be cleaned before installing. Also a good cleaning after being set with a greasy feeler gauge. ( I've seen it done!) Setting might be a little wide, .018 - .020" might be closer but this is a guess. Hope somebody has the actual setting.
