I have had two Zenoah MAgneto begin to spark on the terminal while starting the gas machines...With gasoline vapors directly on the sparks...it is a serious problem for potential fire.

Has any one else experiences this? DOES ANY ONE HAVE A SOLUTION?

Thanks for your help...Irwin

USING A KILL SWITCH

We are using a grounded kill switch that functions normally.

Just started up another new Gas machine being picked up in 3 hours....No spark at the terminmal & the motor fired up in one second...

Checking the coil

We will check the gap on the coil. If it is too small there could be the reason for the sparks on the terminal...

We have used the old dollar bill fold in half to readjust the magnets to fix the problem.

What we found was that the magnets were touching the flywheel & this caused the problem....

All is fixed now ...this was a good learning experience for us....

The more I fly the shaft drive tail the better it feels...
