i have since checked for a spark with the kill wire off and there is no spark.
when i hook the kill switch wire back up and start it and the blower housing is laying forward towards the carb it sparks off the carb. i take it this means theres a short someplace. would it be in the voltage regulator or something else.
also while checking around while the shroud was off i noticed that the plug wires looked like they was cut or something.
here is a pic of the plug wires.

would that also keep it from losing spark after awhile and not start till the next day?

wrapped up the plug wires real good and ran my finger around them and i didnt get shocked
i then moved the shroud around on the carb, and i still have spark
im not off work till monday and tuesday so i can try and trace down a bare wire or something.
also ..... any idea why it wont start after it has ran for a while? could the short be causing this to happen ?

i ordered a new ignition module and after i did i was looking around the net and seen some people have problems with the stator.
i have never messed with a engine with a stator and am wondering if this could be my problem?

Another thought, did you clean the mount points and regap the mag?

i seem to have misplaced my feeler gauge someplace. gonna have to pick up a new set today when we run into town.
i have used a business card in the past but not sure if they have changed thickness or not.

Does it try to run at all with the cover off?

i went out yesterday and she fired right up. tried it after i cleaned the mag and it had no spark again, it also didnt have spark before i cleaned the mag. i should be getting the new ignition module in the next day or so.

If, by chance, the rectifier is grounding the 12V output, would that send 12V+ thru the module kill circuit diode? Hopefully, someone will understand that question!

thanks for the gap, i meant to look it up yesterday but got sidetracked. must be old age creeping up on me.
