So far the only thing odd is the battery. Have you tried a different battery yet?
It doesn't normaly move a whole lot. The weights should swing out freely and the springs should return them back smoothly. The weights should fit good on the pivot pins (no egg shaped holes). Check to see that the cam locating pin on the back side is in good shape (not damaged or broken). If it's messed up, it could be your problem.. If not, lube the pivot pins, advance cam & shaft (I use chain spray) and reassemble the unit as it's probably not your problem. Fire it back up, maybe you'll get lucky. Sometimes the bike just wants a little attention! Good Luck.Trumped said:Thanks guys for the help. O.K. I pulled the points plate and I am able to turn the cam very little. How much rotation should I be getting?
