    On of the things not discussed in trouble shooting is ignition /volt packs.

    Contact points for ignition are a thing of the past. They handled two functions. One called dwell. def
    (of a moving tool or machine part) to be motionless for a certain interval during operation.

    Now it is ignition modules, and the gap between the magneto (flywheel) and the ignition module is even more important. As if dwell. If you have poor power, check your flywheel to see if it has any scratches on it, especially where the magnets are inset. Or is the clearance more than .020"?

    If so, this is likely a magnifier of any performance problem.
