Well as some of you know the Versa-Matic quit running on me a couple weeks ago and I'm now getting around to figuring out why.
I have it ruled down to an ignition issue.
I'm getting a nice blue spark but its not sparking like it should. When I give the engine a pull sometimes it sparks 2-3 times and other times I get 1 spark or nothing.
I was talking with Bruce through PM and he mentioned It may be a faulty condenser.
I cleaned and gapped the points and there was no change.
I went ahead and ordered a new set of points and condenser that should be here Friday.
After pulling the flywheel It seems I have another problem as the Bendix magneto housing is cracked!
I'm still getting a blue spark though so if it turns out to be the condenser do you think I could get away with putting some epoxy in the cracks to seal it up?
If I need a magneto does anyone know where to get one? They are NLA from Kohler but I have heard from someone on here that a guy is making new ones???
Since I have everything apart I'm taking the time to clean the carbon off the head and lap the valves.
