100%.

A quick search would have ruled this out very quickly.

Ok cool thanks

Re: Not idoling later on

Be nice to your idol and it will then idle.

Heh heh!!

Re: Not idoling later on

might be a swollen clutch oh its a garelli and the rubber clutch never swells when hot and never messes up your idle after 15 mins or so, just keep moving and dont stop till u get to your destination.

Re: Not idoling later on

so i want to put it in the same place as the old one. Does it just bolt on?

For more reasons than one , an externally mounted condenser is best .

Here's a explanation of the procedure . It says for Puch , but it pertains to all points systems , but for the color of the wires .

And , another condenser may or may not mount exactly the same as the original .

Re: Not idoling later on

A lot of guys attach it to one of the ignition coil mount bolts/screws and attach the pigtail to the coil feed from the magneto .

Yup, go external. Just did this yesterday for my 45 year old condenser (stamped Germany). Started right up.
