Re: atomic 4 mini explosion

This thread is funny. In reality it could be anything from a couple of loose plug wires to rusty points (would be my first guess) , to a stuck carb float ( another good guess) to a clapped out motor. There is precious little to go on except that there was a lot of unburned gas fumes in a compartment, some oxygen - and then a spark. A compression gauge is very cheap at HF if ignition and/or carb check out.
