Post by mlp34o » Fri Jun 03, 2011 12:15 pm

i changed the alt. in my aspincade. it ran good before i started, now it backfires and will not start.
i checked the timing on the flywheel and up marks, they are ok.
what did i do?

How did you make out on this issue? If your in time and have fuel it should go. Is your battery up to snuff. Are you getting fuel? is it firing? Kill switch?

Make sure you have the plug wires to the correct plug. Has been a problem in the past when pulling the engine out. Easy to mix up #2 and #4. That will cause no run and some good pops (backfireing)
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.
