The rotor gap is important, it should only be about 10 thou, the rotor must not contact the stator.
There should be no connection between the pickup connections and ground.
If you remove the box from the frame does it spark when the rotor is turned then?
I took off the grounding wire to the case...Holy crap it sparks when the pick is mounted and the engine kicked over........So what goes on, the case grounding is supposedly to protect the control box... Something inside has failed?
I bought the Pazon just to use and as a back up until mine retuns...
