View Full Version : Seeing sparks?!?

06-07-2009, 07:52 PM
I have a Toro Zmaster... Model number 74176. Serial number 210000478.

Over the last couple of weeks, I have had an issue with the engine cutting out while I am mowing. Doesnt matter if the blades are on or not. And it would only happen a few times in a day and for only a few seconds...then it would run fine.

I replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump. This didnt fix the problem. I opened it up today to look around. Cleaned off the fins on the cylinder heads.

Then I fired it up with the cover off and noticed ALOT of sparks coming from the left side rocker case. It was also giving off a weird smell. Cant really describe it...not a burning wire or burning oil smell....something in between.

I shut it off because I really didnt want a fire. Can anyone help me figure this one out???
