    Inside the dizzy is the ignitor and coil. both replaceable parts, ignitor being a few dollars more than the coil though. other than that check your plugs and wires.

    same happened to me when i swapped my motor out, i bought a "new dizzy" and spent months trying to find why it wouldn't start and it was the "new" dizzy being faulty the whole time, so like everyone else said check every thing in your dizzy out.

    when it comes to cap and rotors i use honda parts. the rotors have a little play alot of times when i get them from auozone and other parts stores. i know alot of people use them with no problems but one bad experience with autozone rotors and i never trusted them again from there. check your rotor and cap and ignitor. hope one of those is what it is at worst
