There is limitet information available on the Bantam. While looking, I can't determine whether it has a distributor or coils pack. If it has a coil pack, or one dual polarity coil for each cylinder, try putting a new coil on #4. but some of them have a dual coil pack, with one coil pack for 2 and cylinders and another for the other two. Then again some have distributors. If is shorted maybe it's sending too much voltage and coking your plugs. All it is is a step up transformer with windings to give the plug 20,000 to 30,000 volts at miniscule amperage, but that high voltage makes a good spark. One thing you can do is take the spark plug out of #4, hook everything up with the plug out (ground spark plug with alligator clip wire or just ground electrode to block (not center, the tab) and have a helper crank it over..needs a nice cobalt blue spark, If the spark is yellow something is not right...bringing us back to coil
