    IF (and that was just conjecture on my part) the case threads are stripped, it may not be the fault of the builder. The threads may just have "let go" in service. Remember, these old cases are OLD. ...

    L,

    Have you checked to see if that front upper case bolt is tight? If the threads are stripped in the case, that bolt ain't holding anything together. Knowing these old motors as I do, I would say...

    Some truth here, mostly bullshit.

    My go-to ignition for kicker bikes is the Dyna S. It uses the stock mechanical advance unit, and the stock 5 ohm coil that points use. Best of all, it will fire the plugs right down to zero rpm, and...

    Since you are setting the advance timing, you must turn the point cam to its limit, to replicate the advance weights turning it as the motor revs up.

    The compliance fitting gaskets, 29242-83, from the early evos should fit it just fine. Any shop that deals with evos should have some.
