Ugg - snow. Hopefully it'll melt fast and you won't see any more for a while.
I was just in Ohio (holmes county), that's where I got the needle. We made it out of there in time to avoid traveling through the storm.
I'll turn my email on with this reply (if I can figure out how to) - if could send me an email, I'll give you my address.
As for both plugs firing together - I did find that out the hard way when we were trying to get it started.
It really confused me, I thought that the magneto was really messed up somehow - but it all finally started to make sense.
And as for not having a kicker - no need here, that's what the 4h kids are for :) We've got a small army of picker-uppers.
As I repeatedly tell them, "it builds character".
And in fact, I believe it does.
