    so this thing was sitting. got it cheap. I cleaned carb it ran like a champ day 1. few days later no spark. replaced ignition coil. it ran for 30 sec. then I bought a cdi box and stator off ebay. installed both. the cdi box had 2 wrong plugs male/female flip flopped so I cut the ends off to make it work. colors were correct. the stator I had to shave the sides down to make it fit. correct colors and plugs.
    now I got spark. so I cleaned the gas tank and carb again. i go to start it. it runs like crap. almost like a rev limiter. intermittent rev and boggs out when i hit the gas. checked reeds, cleaned carb again, then I pulled off pulley 4 times messing with the timing. still runs like crap. it ran fine until I lost spark and replaced the cdi and stator. tors system is still there but unplugged front and rear wires cut off on bottom of tors box.
    you think its that cdi box I put on? tors system messing it up even though its unplugged? I'm pulling my hair out

    Did you test your old stator?
    If you bought cheap Chinese electronics it could be a problem. Sometimes they work.
    Sometimes they don't.
    Good plug? Plug cap good?
    Is it idling high?
    What exactly did you need to grind down. The plate?
    No cracks on the flywheel magnets?
