Okay, my bike is not getting spark, the coil is good, the points are good, and the wiring is good as far as I can tell. I don't know much about the ignition system so I had my brother look at it and here's what he thinks.
1. the condeser could be bad, but that doesn't mean it should lose spark. He said it's mainly there to "make the bike run better and keep the points from wearing out."
2. it could be something wierd with the wiring, like if the horn isn't working, it cuts the ignition system or something similar.
Would a bad condenser keep the bike from producing any spark? Does a Puch have some wierd way of being wired that a light or horn not working would cause the ignition to cut out?
