How do you eliminate the waste spark in a single cylinder engine?

You mean like in a lawn mower type single cylinder engine. You

can try to increase the gap. Increase it just maybe two thousandths

or so at a time. Make sure the plug is good. A faulty plug will not

deliver the desired spark and will cause excess fuel issues also.

If you are having a backfire issue then too muck fuel is probably

present. Usually when this happens the little o-ring is bad in the

carb or the float is stuck open for some reason.
