I'll try and give all the details. My 706 started sputtering recently. I drained the tank and found some debris above the sediment bowl. I installed a small tube above the bowl so stuff wouldn't drain into there anymore. I took off carb and cleaned jets just to make sure. Put everything back on, filled up and it still didn't run right. Sounded kinda flat. Pulled plugs and they were wet and real gunky at the end. Cleaned them and it ran a little better. But here's the weird deal. Through all of this, when it was running and i would turn the headlights on it would stall it. It wouldnt kill it like turning off the switch but it sounded like when you run out of gas. I added four lights last winter and know i used them and it ran fine.
Does this sound like the generator is going bad? The points are like new.
I have a mechanic coming to look at it but wanted to research it on my own. thanks
