Simplicity: 5216 5 speed
Briggs engine: 402707

After successfully replacing the gear on top of starter...
The starter/battery crank well, but no fire... ..and soon the smell of gas.. Remove the air filter... it's very wet inside... air filter soaked.

What would cause this?
(thanks)

Not Sure Coil?

Don't know...
Didn't know about the kill wire.. You say "coil"... is that part of the Starter?
Or is that part of the copper coil stuff under the Flywheel?
Where does it connect?

BKP,

In the other thread you mentioned pulling the flywheel off in the process of removing the starter. Any chance you have a wire pinched or shorted when you reinstalled the flywheel?
