Hard starting or no starting with my 66 Cub Loboy

Postby dfunt » Sun Oct 26, 2014 6:58 pm

Having trouble starting my 66 Loboy. I know why it won't start but I haven't been able yet to figure out how to fix it. It doesnt have enough spark at times. Problem seems to be intermittant but frequent. Any ideas?

First thing I would look at is the points, form there the cap and rotor, then coil.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Unless the plugs are fairly recent, replace the plugs, too. I used to have that problem with Eddie, and new plugs solved it.
