Thanks I'll check the magnetic pickup this evening. And yes there is fuel getting to it.


It's gotta be electrical or power issue somewhere, upon check for to plug wire getting a spark but it's yellow. Was also told to check control module if coil was acting up. I think I've located it on firewall behind coil. We'll see

Where can I get carburetor specs for my 71 3/4 T Camper Special? She's been sitting in storage, fires up like new, but the carburetor needs adjusting and I don't have a repair manual.
