I'm going to re-solder the burnt out sections. Hope this fixes my issues.

Thanks again!! If it wasn't for this forum, I would have never come to this conclusion.

Thank Allah for this forum!!

Thanks guys!

Zo........excellent pics

It would be interesting to know what part of the circuit is burning out these
solder joints.... probably near impossible to determine unless you are an electronics engineer

I wonder if these are the same joints others have had to resolder

This thread now deserves a 5 star rating

Good luck with the fix.......please be sure to give feedback if it fixes your issues

Do you think it could be part of the Tip Start Circuit?

i never replied back to this post.

The fix worked and I haven't had a problem since then. Hope this helps others as well.

From the looks of the PCB board, something is generating too much heat.

Its the current flow to the fuel pump. The orig soldered joints probably cracked (not an uncommon occurance) and the joint resistance increases. This is then a progression of heat, oxidisation etc until the soldered joint fails.
