    Just for the heck of it, i measured the ohmic value of the spark plugs, two bad ones had resistance but much less than the good ones? what is the correct value of the restive plugs used on these motors

    Maybe email the manufacturer for that info. I think anything more than 5000 ohms is too high for modern ignition systems. I am sure a points type standard (Not High Energy) ignition would need much less resistance. It is a voltage issue. The higher the secondary voltage the higher the resistance.

    Check leakage resistance from center to shell. I'd suspect leakage or breakdown more than an open.

    (A multimeter may not read high enough to give a good answer and I don't know anyone who has a Megger any more ...)
