Thanks Tom for the information but before sending the engine I noticed that the rear cylinder spark plug is not firing. I exchanged the spark plug an it's not the culprit. It's either the Electronic ignition module or the cable/spark plug boot.
Does any one know how how to tell where the problem is?
If not where can I get a new ignition module? I did a Google search for Gunter Muller ignition but could not find it.

if your ignition has the Müller sing, it’s pretty old. Kolm bought the ignitions and modified the Lay-out inside. You can send your ignition to Simon. Maybe he is able to repair it. If not , he will order a new one for you.
please send also the sensor cable.

Hi All,

My IL230 started dropping throttle every 2-5 seconds. example: if at half power the RPM's are fine then all of a sudden it will drop to idle for a second and then surge back to the throttle position I have. It does this at idle, mid-power and full throttle. Could this be a timing issue? The Haul sensor is still nice and tight. doesn't look to have moved. Or is this an ignition issue? Anyone seen this? I also noticed the RMP indicator dropping off line so often to zero and then coming back.. I'm starting to think I have a bad ignition module??? Thanks Rob

Default il230

Sounds like it could be an ignition problem. But have you checked all the obvious possible fuel scenarios? Loose klunk, split fuel line, intermittent fuel pump, blocked fuel vent? is your system using a fuel pump or are you running a pressurized fuel system?
If you cover all of these scenarios and still have a problem send your ignition to Radio City RC for repair / replacement.

Thanks Simon., Yes, I run a fuel pump. not the pump. Just set it back on the bench and going to look at ignition wiring is loose anywhere and will look through the fuel system as well. If not, then I'll be reaching out to Radio City.
