RedStar620 Posted December 5, 2019 Report Share Posted December 5, 2019 I have a 1978 620 and it has this weird crank-no start problem at times. I know its getting fuel because I can smell it at the carburetor. The coil, cap, rotor, wires and plugs seem to be OK because it'll start up and run. If it doesn't start, I've realized that if I remove the cap and rotor and spray electrical cleaner around the ignition pickup inside the distributor and put everything back together, it starts up and runs just fine, although I've also noticed that it possibly has a bit of a misfire. Could the ignition pickup be going bad? I'm stumped. Quote Link to comment
