Sometimes the kicker feels spongee because the motor is turning backwards between kicks and your not really getting through a full forward turn cycle with the motor. If you have a closed primary and stock timer, pop the timer cover off when it is happening and see if the timer floats backwards when you realease the kicker pedal. Just a thought.
