Your RT100 is timed a 1.8 degrees BTDC. You adjust the timing by varing the point gap. So start goofing around with the point gap and you will be OK, try a matchbook cover as the point gap gauge. Always worked for me...

Thanks for the reply mscuddy, I'm confused a little, it doesn't have points- it's CDI ignition. I'll try getting approx 1.8 degrees BTDC, seems very strange that the only way I can do that is by removing the woodruff key from the shaft and positioning the flywheel so the North/South point of the flywheel passes the Pick-Up Coil at the chosen point (1.8 degrees BTDC). Thanks again for your help and interest, Pete

Next instalment-

Bought a used magneto flywheel and stator plate on FeeBay, complete with primary and pick-up coils. The only ignition component not replaced then is the coil. I'll update when the bits arrive and have been tested- fingers crossed

I replaced the Pick Up coil on the staor plate and IT WORKS PERFECT!!!

Thanks to everyone for their help and suggestions.

Cause- incorrect resistance of the Pick Up coil after manually rewinding it (it was open circuit).

Thumbs up

It's nice to see someone post up with their solution. I know there's one some where here that I'd love to have heard what the problem was, but they never posted back. That seems pretty common though on threads. Take, take, take but never give back.
