WIRING PROB OR COIL HELP

if a moped has some wiring problems or the igition coil is burnt out is that easy to fix.... Some guy is selling one for cheap as hell but it has that problem (fixable or not) Its a 1978 jc penny pinto

Re: WIRING PROB OR COIL HELP

give the guy no more than $20 for it. he'll be happy. you can fix it. if not, you can have a parts bike for the future. but i'm sure you can fix it ... someone here will tell you how.

Re: WIRING PROB OR COIL HELP

Definitely fixable. Definitely worth more than $20 if that

Ignition coils almost never die, but if the coil is broken it's very easy to find a replacement and change it. Wiring problems aren't too hard to fix, but usually take a lot of time tracing wires with a ohmeter. In my experience, if there's an electrical problem, chances are it'll be:

1. Bad or corroded ground wire somewhere,

2. Burnt out bulb (as a safety features, some mopeds won't run if the brake or tail light bulb is burnt out when the brake is applied),

3. Dirty, worn, or misadjusted points, or

4. A loose flywheel.

All you need to realize is that the JC Penny Pinto is really a Puch Maxi. Puch's are everywhere and you shouldn't have much trouble finding parts for it or information about it.

With enough time and perseverance anyone can make any moped run.

Chris.
