Could be irrelevant but, check the pickup coil/magnet's dwell gap. I only mention this because I didn't notice it mentioned, earlier, in the thread.
Engine trouble eh

Could the valves be broken and the cylinder still retain compression?
I was thinking of taking the head off to look at the valves, but the compression is good. I figures if the valves were broken enough to stop the engine from working, they would not hold compression at all.

I can't see how they could be broken and still work. The valves are shaped like the lid on a jack 'o lantern. Tapered so they seal the combustion pressures in.

Cool I was thinking of taking the head off but its kind of a bitch to drain the radiator the way I've got it on I'll just wait and see what the shop says.
