Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Would you please post the serial number of the engine?
It should be on a small plate on the right side of the swivel tube.
I mainly need to know if this engine number from the carbs, if you can locate then. They will either be on top, or in the left side of the front.
Got it thanks. Do you have a multimeter to do some testing? We need to make some electrical tests on the ignition system.
Have you already checked the compression on the engine? If so, what was it?
Thats fine, there are no time limits here. The test I need to know, is a cranking test, or the engine can be at idle. Either way, separate the two switch boxes on the engine, leave all wires attached, including the ground wires. Crank or start the engine, I need the AC voltage readings on the Blue and the Blue/white, then the red and the red/white. The black meter lead will need to be grounded to the small screw that is holding the ground wires on.
Compression needs to be over 90 PSI each and all with in 15% of each other.
