Re: Throttle not returning to idle

I found that with this same issue that the fix was to slightly bend the tip of the ball that
the rod attaches to that goes to the throttle at the carb, back towards the slanted floor board.

Re: 12 volt coil on 6 volts

I use a 6 volt battery and a 12 volt coil no issues. 6 volt coils are twice the money and more in my part of the world. I believe that coils do not know the difference ?
