Re: Hard to start when hot

Cold start with a good volt meter you can learn a lot. Run it hot and test with a volt meter. But you have a electronic ignition. Not great advice. Shouldn't have a ballest between the perm and the...

Re: Hard to start when hot

It's hard to check ignition under idle. Try a condenser. I've had decent luck with ih200 from napa, buy a few. Not every is good out the box. There are other options also. Then maybe get a skip coil....
