Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

It was a new experiment Dale!! So strong of a motor I needed to run it on 3, LOL

It must have been very intermittent... Pretty easy to tell by ear when a quad is on 3 and this thing always sounded mint.

Pretty simple Manny! Bad plug or bad cap. I've seen this before - a 10min process to diagnose. Will keep all informed what it is, I'll bet it is the RCexL ignition

Thx Lorne, I am off to bed guys. 4:30 comes early especially when it is dark out, not as bad in the summer when the sun is coming up.
