888, I am finally going to take the bull by the horns here, and I am using your previous post as an example.. ok.. strictly an example. IT is not meant in any other manner EXCEPT as a tool to pass on a bit of information.
So I would hate to have anything I post be taken the wrong way on this board since you all have been exceptionally helpful and kind to me.
I thought buying the manual would have set me up pretty well with what I need but as usual, the manual is no substitute for the experiences you guys have with these machines.

The kids have scouts monday, soccer tuesday and thursday but I can have my wife step in for the soccer thing. Any day you are free and want to make the trip to come down and have a look, that would be great.

I'm thinking the purpose of the coil is to build up the native 12 V voltage into high voltage for the spark plugs so I should see an increase in voltage on the output side of the coil. Sound ok?
Is there a shield between the plug and the piston? I have been pulling the plug to check for gas and noticed there was never any difference in the position of the piston in the cylinder. I turned it by hand and nothing inside moved. Just wondering.

As you've discovered, lots of liquid gasoline drains out through the carburetor intake instead of flooding the combustion chambers. Most of the gas vapor passes out thru the exhaust without condensing on the spark plugs, at least during the dog days of summer.
