With BTZ ignitioni am having increasing problems with it only running on oneor two cylinders until it warms up and all three kick in.Its usually the right side pot that has problems and sometimes the leftbut never the middle. With the plugs out ,the left side and centre plugs are a nice golden brown but the right plug is running rich(black/sooty),when i clean it and replace it the bike fires up like a good 'un..However ,when left overnight and started in the morning(especially if its cold)it usually only fires on the 2 left pots. Even though i'm having a few probs, this bike (when firing on all 3) is absolutely Awesome.I've never had a bike like it. , I would recomend to start at the carbs. If you have a friend with an ultrasonic cleaning-bath, buy yourself 3 gasket-kits for the carbs, totally unmount them (maybe one after the other to avoid you end up not knowing how to put them together again...), clean them, exchange all O-rings and gaskets, make sure all jets are free and - VERY important - check the float-hights and synchronize both the carbs and the choke-sliders. With little tuning on the mixture screw, it should be very reliable on starting after that.,,,

evinrude 1978 -1979 have a capacity discharge ignition unit as the control for the spark system
it runs wires to an ignition coil
so I would be suspicious of that unit
check all connections for corrosion and bad connections
I typed in electrical schematics for 1978 evinrude out board engine and found a site which in the list of schematics has 55hp 1977-1978
press on that and you get a schematics of the wiring diagram evinrude 1978-1979 55hp
now I am aware that you state that yours is 35 hp but if it has 2 cylinders then it is a fair bet that the wiring diagram will be the same
any way there are plenty of other sites that may be of benefit

100000BTU Kerosene (no t-stat) Fires up and works intermittantly

The fuel leak must be corrected since I believe this is
connected to the fuel supply at the nozzle at the firing
area. Fuel nozzle must be atomize all the time to keep
it burning, otherwise the operation stops. This is what I
know from experience. May this info help you.

1978 CJ7 No power and back fires when accelerated.

Timing should advance when accelerated. You have the vac on the distributor hooked to manifold vacuum. It needs to be on ported vacuum. And your base timing could be higher. I would set it at ten degrees.

How do i set the cams up on a 120 jota?

Trying to remember, but all I had were twins. The triples were harder to come by. What's the guy's name? Wolfgang! He's the North American guy for older Laverda parts. He goes to the factory in Italy at least once a year. He lives in British Columbia, Canada. If you can't find him, check back with me. I will find his info. Good luck. TT

Jota primary chain

is anyone able to confirm this as it looks a little fragile. You sometimes find 2 single chains on Laverda twins and triples. I never heard that Laverda used them instead of the triple chain to cope with any problems. The version I've heard is that the triple chain has not been available for some years. Therefore the 2 single chains were used. Though I never heard of the 2 single chains crashing i personally prefer the triple version. ,,
