Nabbed a free self propelled lawn mower from work. Troy Bilt, Briggs, was used once practically brand new. We decided to outsource the lawn work.

Well it wouldn't start. No spark. One part only, the ignition coil/electronic module thingie. Like a 15 dollar part right?

This particular one I CANNOT find a crossover for, the exact briggs part number is 593381.

The lawn mower is junk without it. This should be easy and even if I could find something that takes the same diameter flywheel it would probably work. Anyone have a 593381 laying around? LOL

I bought a 593872 , looks identical, came on a MTD that looks exactly like my TroyBilt. Same briggs OHV motor.


Let's see if it works.

Only one I could find is in the UK. It is described as new but not complete.

I would hit the local Ace Hardware small engine department and have the model and serial number of the engine. They would need to order it as ignition modules get superseded yearly and the parts counter do not keep anything like this in stock.

I replaced the ignition on a 35 year old Briggs 6 HP two years ago and it was just under $50. The block cracked a few months back and I replaced it with a 7 HP Ironton from Northern Tool for $99. I junked the old engine.

Thanks guys, what blows is this thing died within the first year and there was a 2 year warranty, they could have just got another mower. Of course the thing is over 4 years old now.

The one I found is used but that number is a more common one.... if the used one works I'll order a new one just to have a spare. Having a spare means the original one will never die because money MUST BE WASTED! My luck.

I got a free mower when my folks moved into assisted living last year. Brand new John Deere. Then scored a grass catcher kit for $75.
