well..start with the simple stuff..and work your way up to the hard stuff..check kill switch ?..nuetral light on ?..battery fully charged ?..spark plug fouled ?..if all this is good..then you move on to the hard stuff..check your pick up coil..stator..c.d.i..spark plug coil.06 400 rancher at, any suggestions?
yeah..thats what i meant..lol..you have no idea how many ppl never stop to think about putting the kill switch in the center '' run '' position..lol..if you changed coil..spark plug cap..c.d.i..have to ask..but...did you get the same year model and make as your c.d.i ?..if not..that could be your problem...if all else is correct..then you have a bad stator..or pick up coil..more known as the pulse generator..both of these are inside the left cover.Can u explain? With the key on kill switch in the center position everything lights up and motor turns over good.
geeee..i thought i was shadetree ??..lmfao..anyway..it's not hard to do...well..not for me anyway..lol..as for me stating in a earlier post..i said the stator is on the left side..excuse me for this..correction..it's on the rear of your motor..sorry..these new engine designs keep throwing me off...oh..in case you are reading in the service manual ( if you have one )..it clearly states you can remove the cam and stator ( does in my manaul for the 350 rancher ) while the motor is mounted in the frame...thats bs !..lmao..you cannot service anything other than the flywheel..and pull starter while the engine is in the frame..soooooo..in your case..you will need to pull the motor in order to service your stator. good luck.Thats what I thought. How hard is it to replace it? I'm a shadetree.
