    I have a Pertronix coil on the way. It was the only 3 ohm performance coil I could find. I will let everyone know if this fixes it.

    It looks like my magnets are still there, so that is good.

    Rev limiting problem at ~4000 rpm

    So, as some saw in my previous thread I am having a rev limiting problem. The symptoms are very similar to what is happening in some other posts on here, but I can't seem to identify my problem.
