Went to start my 4hp Ronny n type today couldn't get him to kick grabbed hold of the spark plug lead and only got a small tingle while cranking it would that be the condenser she hasn't been started for quite a while also where can i buy a condenser in QLD cheers ken
I set my RS1 points to 0.015" on the Buzacott but cleaning and gapping is very inportant. If you have a multi-meter also test continuity of the HT lead from the contact inside the cap to the connector on the end of the lead. with condensors I think a Holden style one from Bosch a GL106I think will work inside or better still a film capacitor from the local electronic shop / jaycar. After these simple items then its time to test the coil as Scotty suggests.
