this is where it gets techy. even though he has spark, is it strong enough? a weak spark can cause a misfire. so too much gap in the cap and rotor plus spark plugs can cause a weak spark which simple turbulence can blow it out.
I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming
