need some help with points on a hobbit

DAM brian barkalow /

i have a 79 hobbit pa50ii with spark at low rpm none at mid and intermittent on the high end ... so i guess im asking is how do i go about adjusting the points

Re: need some help with points on a hobbit

how are you determining these sparking ranges. I am confused, is it that it will idle but as you give it throttle it dies? I need more.

My guess is adjustment will not help much. I had symptoms like this and kept trying to bandaid it. Put new points in. The problem continued. Put new condenser in, did not fix it. Replaced the points again and it was good. I guess the short of it is inspect the points to see if they are pitted or the plating is bad. If it is replace BOTH the points and condenser. When I skipped the condenser it wrecked my new points!

you know they make inline spark plug testers. otherwise is it possible it is a fuel problem OP?
