David,

I go out for a beer and you fall apart!

I just finished reading this thread. It took a while!

I'm with You and Fred, I think you may have an ignition problem. You should try to find out if the battery has anything to do with the ignition before you beat yourself to death over that one. It could be a bad cdi unit if it does not require a battery.

Keep a couple of things in mind as you work:

The Mantra:

It's only an engine...

It's only an engine...

The problem:

Two cycle motors are so simple that when they do not run correctly, it is really difficult to find something to fix. Never assume anything is good, just because you just replaced, cleaned or repaired it. When you have a problem, try one thing at a time and immediately return it to the way it was, before moving on to the next potential solution (don't put the dirt back in the carb).

After you have tried everything and failed, the thing you did not try is the problem. In this case it sounds like the cdi or battery, but never overlook the spark plug, wire and cap.

Oh, and never give up. It's only an engine... It's only an engine..

Remember, in the words of the immortal Red Green, "We're all in this together"

Ron
