Hi @chadquick16

You may have to spend $US20 but it may be worth it in the end if it saves a lot of time and trouble. There are other suppliers of the service manual online but this is the cheapest that I could find.

Hopefully this is of some help.

Sounds a couple things; 1) like a battery with a problem I’ve seen a car with bad battery (though held a charge, evidently had bad cell) do this. The other culprit I’ve seen do this is a bad CDI or combination failing CDI & relay.

You likely have tried this, but if not, take out the CDI box and heat it up with a hot air gun until it’s almost to holt to hold then immediately plug it in while still hot and try starting.

Sounds frustrating, I wish you luck!
