I miss the gadgets, but overall there is less that can go wrong. I agree.I too have AAA for the sole reason being my ramcharger lol. Feels like I’ve used it for every vehicle BUT my RC. RC has been my most reliable vehicle as well as my oldest.
The ignition coil tested ok, so not the problem. The starter turns the engine, carb is getting gas, but no spark. Someone suggested the electronic ignition module. Would the starter turn if that was the issue? When it does fire, runs perfect for a few minutes, then just suddenly cuts off. No warning, no sputtering. Old gas? Seems like it would struggle with old/bad gas. Gas in tank is about 6 months old. I am perplexed.
I replaced the electronic ignition module (see pics of old and new one). Still not getting spark. I am uploading a video of engine trying to start in case anyone spots something I am missing. So it isn't the ballast, the ignition coil, or the electronic ignition module since those are all new. Plugs and wires are less than a year old. It is definitely getting gas in the carb.
