It may not be an actual cap, but those flyweights push something out to push against the gov arm. Better look at that exploded view to check me tho.

Seems like you can't buy gum for $250 anymore so I would say you got a great deal!

Well it turns out that the bolt at the base of the govenor arm was loose! after tightening it up it seems to run fine! But after it sitting over the week i went to start it yesterday and it ran like crap :wallbanging:. So i tried swapping and cleaning carbs to no solution. Then I took the spark plug out and watched the spark and about every 5 seconds or so it would ''skip a beat''. Could my condensor be shot? Points? I tried numorous spark plugs but got the same problem, Thanks for any help.
