Yes, 4 flats. machine cut. Now this is gonna be one of those "Why won't
this engine start?", "Is there gas in it?" kinda questions, but, does the
position of the flats on the rotor matter?

.780" flats (.750" of the Acitve pole to active pole, plus 30 thousandths)
1.750" non cut

Me, too, centrifigal switch works though. I saw it spark as the S Windings

Yes, comes up to speed quickly and stays there.
If not, it may be trying to sync but losing sync (you can hear it

No load at all, only thing a did was TAPE a CARDBOARD circle about 3" dia
with a line drawn on it.
