>>I'd disconnect the shut off circuit completely to remove it as a possible problem.<<
Done, actually I cut EVERYTHING out of the circuit and had just hot, lead and grand from the generator...and it reads off 12V 80W, just like supposed to.
Tried it like that, Iskra wouldn't fire but one -fer- twelve, abouts.
New coil wouldn't fire at all.
>>I don't know if the Targa has one of those strange taillight/ignition intermarriages, but that would be another thing to check.<<
I think it does, but like I said, I cut everything out of circuit to test it this time.
