Gonna add my two cents to this.**
only because I'm having a similar issue that might be related here.
**I need to know what good spark is and how to test for that. What would that look like on a meter and can I read it with one without getting zapped?
Also, Robbie, I think I'm in the same boat as you. I do have a replacement stator from a PW50. I've changed many parts on it except for things inside so far. I did have someone tell me that my reads could be all kinds of messed up or stuck curled or something like that...
Does anybody know if my reeds being weird could do to my QT50, what is happening to Robbie's QT50?
