B&S Engine-elec. ig. vs points & condenser
I have an old (30 +- yrs.)B&S engine that's hooked up to a water pump that is used to water garden. Until I stopped using it about 5 years ago I'd have to replace the points & condenser two or three times a year. My local small engine shop said he could fix that by installing electronic ignition, which he did.
Alyhough the engine runs "fine" the rpm's seem very low and it doesn't pump water for beans. I can't seem to increase the rpm's and am thinking about going back to points and condenser, but not if I need to replace them frequently.
1. Is there any way to increase the rpm's with elec. ignition?
2. What would cause freqeunt failure of points & condenser?
I'd appreciate any thoughts you might have.
