The dealer I'm looking at for a price is 74.50 for an ignitor. I assume we are still talking about a '97 4x2. A module that goes in an HPX costs that much. When the mechanic said you would have NO spark, he is wrong. In both cases the module in the HPX and the ignitor in the 4x2 are responsible for spark advance so you could have spark but at the wrong time. HPX modules will have spark and the plugs will be wet with gas but they won't run because the spark is there at the wrong time.There is no module in a '97 4x2, the spark is controlled by the ignitor.

 4x2 gator

one last question, i found out yesterday that when i rebuilt the carb i did not see in the gasket set i ordered or the float bowl kit i ordered the o ring that goes in the needle seat hole for the needle to seat with the mec said i must have blown it out of the hole with the compressed air and the carb was getting way to much gas im hoping this will fix the problem , before the machine would crank up and run but after a bit it would just die then would not crank would the igniter be bad even if it runs and idols verry good until it warms up a bit then dies. after the carb is fixed if it still happens i will replace the ignitor thanks for all your help your the best...

I don't ever remember an o ring seat for a needle on a 4x2 Gator. I have half a dozen 4x2 carbs and Iam almost positive none of them have an o ring seat in them. I will check two or three today. I do know that the tab on the float will wear the stem on the needle down to the point that it isn't long enough to seal the gas inlet when the float is all the way up. Did you get a new needle? The ignitor has a heat shield under it, so it is heat sensitive.

You are correct on the o ring there is none on a 4x2 gator the man said the carb was rebuilt right and its sealing off the fuel correct so its not the carb i ordered a ignitor for 71.00 today it will be here tomorrow and ill see if that fixes the machine cutting off I will post if that fixes the problem Bart..

Bart,
Did the ignitor solve your problem? I have a similar problem on my 4x2.
