Feeling around in there

Mr Jones kindly lifted his skirt and showed us his motor the other day. Playing around in there found that the mechanic who installed the electronic ignition did NOT bundle the wires correctly. The power wire’s insulation had melted onto the engine (we run a bit hot- still figuring that part out) and as a result the sparks that resulted shorted out the wiring in the ignition up front.

Ordering a new ignition kit this week. And then I get to learn how to put it in! 🙂
