Hi everyone !
Great to find a vintage Dirt Bike Forum !
I have had my PE 250 since 1978. Basically stopped really riding it 20 years ago, has been parked in my dry garage.
Traditionally what I have done, is every spring when I put my TORO 2 stroke snow thrower away, I'de pour the fuel mix into the PE, and see if it would start ! It has every year except this year ! I did take the fuel out of the tank.
I'de tried kicking it over. I pulled the plug and I do get spark, but IS it enough. It does have a fresh fuel mix. I just bough a new plug ! I have been able to start it on the original ND plug before ! I do get fuel into cylinder , I can see the moisture on the exhaust !

Is there a way to check to see if the spark is strong enough ? If the CDI unit works ?
Any help would be great !!!!
Ted
