Pull fuel source and crank clear.
Try again.
If still no start, verify you have spark.
If no spark, verify correct Crank Position Sensor is being used (ATX and MTX have different mounting plates / distance from reluctor wheel changes).

crank position sensor is possible as the conversion used a totaly diff mounting bracket
supplied by bostig
also the auto used 2 washers for clearance maybee this is off? or bad
any way to test sensor?
and tried the no fuel still nothing
and we have 3 coils 2 new the tester shows spark
although 2 of the four looked fainter
again cheers
