+Spark Plug wire & -Black wire - 1.115

Spark Plug wire & Black lead - 6.88k

Oh, and a picture of the stater. Seems cleaner than I expected it to be.


My magneto looked exactly like your does too.....but still when I replaced it all of a sudden the engine comes to life again......from what your readings are showing for your magneto Ive been told that sometimes the ground small wire shown in post #2 of testing your magneto thread has a poorly soldered connection or insulating blocking the connection.....reheating and re-soldering that wire after cleaning it could solve your problem.....Im gonna check the 2 magnetos I have for this that way I have spares if nothing else seeing as I already have a new one in the engine now......

heres my thread with my problem you can read on.....
