btw: bowser has an electrical gremlin I'm fighting.  I have a plug that keeps popping out even though it is crimped and hard to slide on/out.  I may need to re-look at what I got going there.  Maybe even engine selection.

That's really strange! Care to elaborate?

The spade connector on the key switch keeps coming out even though it is snug.  Not sure why.  Same with the engine ground.

Well, I got the Green Machine out yesterday and it went down a cylinder.  After some investigation, I diagnosed I lost spark on # 2.  Like nothing.  I was still getting spark from # 1 and I'm sure you know an opposed ignition coil looks like.

I dug in and pulled it out.  I could not find any breaks in the wire or anywhere it could be grounding out.  Spark plug was fine.  I checked it with the # 1 wire.  Only thing I saw that was out of the ordinary was where the wire plugs into the coil looked like it was leaking flux or something.  I'm guessing it got hot or faulty.  I snagged the one from Kal's carcass out under my lean-to put it on and was back in business.  After some "blowing out", it returned to its normal purring!

Yep, that flux looking plastic stuff that kind of melts out of the side is a sure indication that it bit the dust. Whenever I get one like that I rarely even test it before throwing it out.

AYE! I left a bottle of super clean on the hood of the Green Machine and forgot about it. It leaked from swelling and heat. Needless to say, the super clean stripped the hood down to the metal clean in about a 4 inch circle. Also the runs ate away some of the paint. Yikes!

Couple updates...

The superclean mishap.

As you may have saw in the Dirty Rat thread.  I did some tire swapping.  Yes, I did swap with the Green Machine.  The black is growing on me.
