I have been having a problem where the engine just quits after a few minutes. So I decided to order a new carb complete.
In the meantime, the way ignition system works is I flip a toggle switch and it supplies current to the electronic solenoid.
So when current is supplied the metal tip of the shaft retracts into the metal cylinder. This seems correct. What I don't get is if I keep
current to the electronic solenoid after say 5 seconds the metal travels out of the metal cylinder ( this is a the normal state when resting )
Is this supposed to happen? Also I have seen it travel back and forth fairly quickly. I don't know enough about it but I thought as long as current is supplied the metal tip should be retracted inside the metal cylinder.
Does anyone know how this is supposed to work?
