Yesterday I found the source of the misfire on the No. 8 Pantah and, as I suspected, it was the Bosch ignition. But not deep inside the engine at the pickups, where I looked. It was at the ends where the wires go into the 4-gang mole connector. Cutting off three inches, removing all the old crumbling thin sheathing, and putting new pin connectors on solved the problem. Funny how a continuity test does not help show that. Fired up on the second spin, and runs. Sounds pretty nasty too, almost as bad-ass as some of those "big old" TT1s and TT2s at the Ducfest loud bike contest, but without all the grief of that rear wheel starter. Would have been nice to fire it up there and maybe even try out the track, but at least it runs fast in my garage. Next spring awaits. MikeV

As I was telling MikeV and Lou after looking closely at the replacements in our inventory, 8 out of 12 units in stock (new in the factory bag) had deteriorating wire sheaths. So, it's not just hot oil or heat that takes out the insulation - it's just age. ..Depressing..
