Re:

If it was the mag, then wouldn't there be bugger all spark ?? John reckons it's sparking strongly, even when it's not starting. When my VB wouldn't hot start, and it was the magneto, it had a really, really rubbish spark... A weak mag will spark happily outside the cylinder but put it under working...
