On some mopeds the tail light is essential to run the ignition system. Is this the case with a peugeot? One of the 2 filaments in my tail light is burnt out. I don't know if it's the brakes or the tail light.
I've had trouble getting my ped to run reliably. I'm wondering if I have some electrical issues. Is there any way to check the coils without some kind of inductance meter? Anyone know what the DC resistance should be?
Compression is 130 psi. Muffler and exhaust port are clear (even running without the muffler doesn't help much). Timing is set according to the timing procedure posted by (i think) matt wilson. I have some kind of spark, because the thing runs, but only after much and hard pedalling, and even then, it often dies. points/condenser and plug are all new.
I will check the spark tonight or tomorrow. I do this be holding the plug against a ground right? How can I tell if the spark is weak or not? Assuming it is good, the only thing left to look at is the carb, right?
I will get it running good someday soon... he he
