Hello, I’m new to the forum and I have a question some people might know. I have a 2000 xc700 that had bad spark and the engine was out of the sled the hole summer. I got a new stator and a new cdi. I put the engine all back together and it ran like a dream, well for a couple days. It started randomly backfiring like crazy at about 5000 rpm’s and hardly moves so I took the stator out again and everything tested good. So my question is, is there a specific spot that the stater has to line up to? I read that if it isn’t lined up with where it’s supposed to be it will mess your timing up very bad. If anyone could help me it would be great.
