Me either, I am about 95% sure it is the ZEM flywheel on the DUCATI stator plate. I told you about it before, and you had said the same thing because of the mismatched brand names. It started doing it when I swapped the flywheels, because my DUCATI took a shit. So, I took the ZEM off the G.B, and thats when it started. The ZEM stator off the G.B. is junk... can't get it to make hardly one volt at all, let alone enough to make the coil produce spark. The motor will not fire a lick unless the stator is fully retarded, and yes, I gapped the points correctly, using a feeler gauge. What I need is the tool used to measure where the piston is, compared to when the points open. It runs good, but I think it would run a little better if I could properly adjust the timing. Oh, and are there different crankshafts for the A-3? I have seen only one type.... but it is possible!
