Just when I was about to shit can the magneto.. It was pardoned in the final hour. Finally able to start the bike reliably with it. Sometimes even 1 kick..combination of things .. 1. Had the Magneto completely rebuilt by morris. 2. Bill worked his voodoo on it , 3. changed the float, changed the Linkert Body, this new body has some adjustability which my old one didn't, idle set a little higher than I used to set it, 4. Made sure the timing was dialed perfect with a combination of the Morris Buzz box and a timing light, 6. Sold my soul to the devil 7. Getting the compression stroke set just right on the kicker pedal so you get a longer kick. The "ol timer" at the SanDiego swap, back in March, showed me that one. Invaluable that really helps.
