Ralph to replace a CDI does it have to be the exact replacement or any other CDI work?
One more question is the CDI purpose to only provide the spark for the plug? I have a DLE30.     Bob

almost all cdi ignitions work the same, cloned from C&H in that they retard from the first flast flip then advance from there...Only other difference is the size of the spark plug...
Timing should be checked..Correct timing for all gassers is 28 degrees BTDC....
There are some ignitions that don't have the electronic timing advance, but those are few and far between...
