    Hit & Miss Engine Help Needed - Part 2 UPDATED

    Just to check as my other H&M engines operate using a Hall Sensor. Do I adjust the timing (spark firing) by adjusting this brass piece that pushes down to make the spark at TDC?

    Miss Engine - Help Needed

    Thanks Jason appreciated. That red wire not being connected had me worried. Now that I know that, at least I can rule that out. I've checked a fair things, checked for as much connectivity with a multimeter as my knowledge will allow....just can't find why its dead as a door nail.

    Sad but wonderful history on Weeden Toy Steam Engine
