the wire that goes to the condensor (blue) gets caught underneath the coil and grounds out that was my bugger,
hey reb, i wired in the external, mounted it to the old spot where the other condensor was. now my lighting coil seems to be out and no spark.
where did i go wrong? could the bareness of the condensor wire short out the lighting coil? i got the three coil 12v and the blue wire that goes under the points in a pinch set, had slipped out and got pulled outward due to the flywheel rotation.
i had just got it running with two condensors before and it was a little flat at WOT. after your suggestion that they could short to ground, i decided to remove the old one.
thats when i found the stripped section of wire that was arcing to the coil. it was factory fresh so its a weak spot in the design of the stator
if i am lucky i burnt a bulb, if not, i got to start trouble shooting that stator coil. will it run without a headlight or lighting coil? my tail is fine.
