Sounds more like a grounding issue. Check your cabling, battery and starter for starters. Still worth it to swap the relays, but yellowing light and intermittent flicker always says poor ground to me.

I suppose they have to fail some time. It was odd to actually note when the balance actually changed. Aggravating because she was fantastic for a vey short period. I want that back.

Good question. I don't know.

While the spark might be wasted, it would be problematic if the fuel were in the wrong place at the wrong time with a "wasted" spark.

Yes. The Pistons are currently locked at TDC. The flywheel is locked. The "OT" is visible.

It does make sense and the chains were initially secured to the sprockets. It's part of the problem in that they are no loner secured. So the reference they once provided is no longer available.

I was wondering if the HES gate orientation is aligned with the timing on the chainwheel. If it is aligned when the gap is up, then the right cylinder is at firing TDC.
