I have a 1978 motorbecane 50V that is just about all there. I picked it up yesterday and the first task is to check for spark. However, the wire coming from the coil just dead ends with no spark plug cap. I did a search of the Internet and found a part number of 23478. Then I went to treatland and tried searching for the part number, no success. And then tried searching for “spark plug cap“, again no success.
Now I’m wondering if I can just go to the hardware store and get a spark plug cap that will fit the correct spark plug type (I have the spark plug type written down but I don’t have it in front of me right now).
So I guess my question is, “is there anything special about the motorbecane plug cap or is it just a regular plug cap that needs to fit the plug and the wire from the coil?”
