Hi Stephen, my name is jason.

I read what you wrote. What kinds of questions did you have? Do you understand the components of the ignition system and how they work?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
what do you need
Expert:  Jason replied 8 months ago.

I dont' need anything other than to know what your questions are. There are 5 parts to the ignition system;

1. Stator

2. Trigger

3. Switchbox

4. Ignition coils.

5. Stop circuit.

Did you need the instructions from the factory service manual in terms of troubleshooting this? Or did you have questions that you specifically wanted me to answer?

Are you still with me?

176;why is it not fireing on no1 but delay fire on no 2 after you pull the rope
Expert:  Jason replied 8 months ago.

Because one of the ignition system components is faulty. All components have to be tested in order to figure out which one is the bad part.

To be honest I'm a little confused. Did you need the specs from the manual in regards ***** ***** the components?
