I'm in the process of rescuing my first moped. The wiring looks as if it has been messed with so I wanted to make sure everything was patched correctly. I have used Jim C.'s Vespa Grande wiring diagram from a few posts down and followed most of the wires to their proper positions but I am having TROUBLE LOCATING THE H.T. COIL. Can someone tell me where it would be? I figured it was down between the pedal area but I followed the violet wire from the engine stop on the handlebars to the headlight enclosure. Could it be up there beneath the plastic enclosure? I also know it would be easy to follow the wire off of the sparkplug to find it-- but the ped came without a sparkplug or a sparkplug cap and wire. Ugh I know, I'm green at this. But hey my moped is green too. Sorry that was bad.
