Thanks for the reply, but they are much smaller and I have no way to measure. By the way I love this engine...... Thanks again

I would contact Jin, I am sure he would help you out with this.

How do you go about repairing something like this?

Try adjusting the timing so that it starts firing where you want it - a little before top dead center on the compression stroke. If it fires for too long a time that should not matter as long as it doesn't keep firing after the exhaust stroke is complete.

It will not fire at tdc where it should, but anywhere in the rotation it fires about 4 times a second. Once when I touched on off switch it zapt me preaty good . The hall effect appears to normally open.when it closes at tdc the firing stops

If you check Gavmans Workshop on YouTube you can see for yourself, he has the very same problem

I have ordered the single cylinder ignition accessories item from microcosm for 53 dollars. Its the system that came with the engine complete with a spark plug. Hopefully it will last a long time.

If you bought your engine direct from Jin, I would tell him how short of a time it lasted and see if there is any kind of deal he can give you on the parts...

Is it possible your ignition was just wired wrong and perhaps polarity backwards on your pick up connections?

The hall senser is2 wire and normally open until the magnet passes and it closes the circuit much like a set of points. My senser tested good. Since it shocked the hell out of me I  think it has a short between the primary and secondary coils mabey  a factory defect or maybe over heat I don't know. I have drilled ventilation holes in the box and will try using 2 batteries. I ordered spare for backup. If we were conceded about money we would not send it on these fun little toys. Thank everyone for the responses
