I don't know for sure, but does anyone know off hand? The motor is a 1988 Rotax 377.

Just went out to take a look at the sled, and there's no spark again. I'm not sure what's going on anymore....

I forgot to mention that. I did disconnect the key and kill switch, but still no luck...

Is it possible that the timing plate has come loose? Maybe thats the reason on why I have spark sometimes, then later I don' have spark. Just an idea?

Check the CDI box. Any cracks? Can you see the green stuff inside?

timming plates dont usually come loose, unless someone had taken it off, and did`nt tighten it down good. plus, even if it came loose, it should`nt stop it from sparking.

I'll take a look at the CDI box later today. Hopefully I don't need a new one. Damn things cost 60 bucks...And its not very old either...I'll go over all the connections again today...

Should I remove the recoil, and take a peek behind there?>

Wouldnt hurt to look, recoil is easy enough to pull off. I would check my plug wires, coil and cdi. Also check the wires going to each of those make sure they are not corroded.

I checked the coil yesterday, and went over all the wires. The coil is brand new anyways with new wires and plug caps. I checked all the other wires too and cleaned them with electrical cleaner and cleaned up the grounds. I tried unplugging the key and tether cord too, but still no luck.
