Nope the plugs were all in...,
Fair point about the plugs, however in my defence I always ground the plug,
I've buggered a rectifier in the past, before I learned that one.
Could a/the reed/s valve have been damaged, would this reduce comp on this engine? Would it give blow back through the carb/s
I don't know it's make up, If something substantial is no longer being spun by the starter it would give a quicker spin (again don't know this engine) I'm beginning to think it could be serious?.
