Jack, I think I am solving it..... I put the PW50 charge coil on the stator using your Youtube video instructions. While things were apart, I also upjetted the clone carburetor with a 77.5.
The spark must have improved tremendously because it only took 1/2 a kick and it fired right up. Before it would take several kicks. I took it for a brief ride but two things are now happening and I didn't get to drive it long enough to see if it still cuts out. 1) I think that the 77.5 jet is too much. The motor simply bogs at WOT. Works well up to WOT but then...brapp.....blahhhhhh....I'm going back to the 70 (or whatever comes in that miniky clone 2) there is a secondary noise coming from the flywheel. I think the new charge coil is brushing the magnets. I've attached a video link. You can hear it when the rpms come down. I have to pull the flywheel and investigate.
Once I resolve the new noise, I'm looking forward to testing the new coil. I'm optimistic.
I also attached picture of original stator (coils). I think someone asked for it.
