T120R 71

This goes along with the hard to kick start thread.

What I am wondering is is the Spark's EI, brain is working properly. The advance is supposed to retard to what degree for starting, right? How do I test that?

What I remember is that the Boyer can be ruined by something, I think AC. I know I had a problem with AC being produced. I can't remember if I had to leap start it after that. I do remember that for a time it was easy to kick start. What I am thinking is that the timing is remaining advanced, so I want to check that. How do I do that? Is it possible that the Spark's would behave in this mischievous fashion, that is to leave the timing too advanced?
