Could be a few things...There is a pulse generator in the alternator...Also could be the spark plug wire/cap...There are instructions in the manual for checking all the components....

Are you using the electric start or the pull starter? If electric, try with the pull starter. The electric starter will draw power away from the ignition when it starts to go bad. It will still whip it over full speed, just prevent spark.
