    That sounds very much like the problem I had. Has it even popped? Or do you get nothing at all? I had to return the motor. The new one they sent me fired right off. I havent had one apart, yet, but I believe they have a square mounting or splined the crankshaft making it possible for the timing to be indexed wrong.

    I hope you can exchange with the seller.

    Ok, that's different than my problem was. That sounds more electrical. I don't trust the stock sparkplug wire at all. It just might need replaced. Check the connections. Look under the magneto cover for a screw that may have loosened.

    So many things can go wrong where you get intermittant service.
