Re: Whats This????
I also had the same thing happen to me and at the same time my clock kept loosing time (a couple hours a night). I had a couple of other wierd electrical things happen as well. So i changed the pick up and i put a heavy ground strap from one of the starter bolts to the fire wall and i haven't burned up any more pick up coils and my clock hasen't lost a sec in 2 years, also all the other little electrical problems went away instantly. Another thin you can do is put one more strap between the eng and the frame and you will not have to worry about that ground problem ever. I used 1.5 inch wide flat,multy banded, ground straps.
I hope this helps you solve your problem. Let me know how it works out.
