Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Your injector should not be getting hot when just cranking the engine over, sounds like it may have a short in it. For the spark, you need to make sure that the engine is in Neutral at the control handle, and that the kill switch is connected and working properly. You will also need a scanner for this engine, to make sure that there no other electrical issues.
