THAT WAS A JOLE THEN? YOU DON"T USUALLY RUN AROUND WITH FLAMES SHOOTIN OUT YOUR CARB!
ON YOUR DIZZY CAP YOU"LL FIND 4 SCREWS,,PUSH DOWN +TURN 1/2 way,OH yeah you"D better mark your leads first,As you look at the engine from the front,put numbered masking tape 1,3,5,7. on your leads 1 nearest to you then 3 and so on,ON your left side 2,4,6,8.
now undo the dizzy screws +remove your dizzy cap +leads.O.K. so far
