'85 Fi 1200 Wing, only runs with starter engaged

Post by RedFlash » Sun Apr 08, 2018 10:26 am



Changed solenoid, reset TPS, still no idle, just runs with started engaged. Once released, it quits. Any suggestions?

Just a quick look.Seperate the fuel delivery system from the ignition.Probe the black/white wire feeding the ignition coils.It can be found at the kill switch also.Does it retain power before/during and after the start button is pushed?
