AMF no spark? need parts

I have a 79 AMF with the Mccullagh engine. I bought it all apart in a box. I have it all back together the way I think it goes. But I have no spark. It also has no lights what so ever on it. I am looking for a repair manual on the whole bike and or the engine. Any help would be great!!

Thanks

Lee

Also clean the points and check the spark plug.

Re: AMF no spark? need parts

Lee Does your AMF have points or electronic ignition? I worked on several motors and all were electronic ignitions-- no points. I looked around but was unable to find the parts I needed. Good luck!

It has electronic ignition. I got a manual for it. I am trouble shooting it now. Doug says he can get me any part I need, including the CDI module.

Thanks

Let me know how it goes. I have all the manuals also. I just got mine and haven't started screwing with it yet.

Re: AMF no spark? need parts

I don’t know the specifics of this brand of moped’s wiring but generally speaking units with electronic ignition won’t spark by turning over the engine by hand. The reason being that the flywheel has to turn over a specific number of rpm to induce a current to switch over a transistor, the transistor being a substitute for the points. I should also point out that you should never try to crank the engine over without having either the spark plug lead grounded or a spark plug connected (in its proper fashion) or the solid state circuitry might be damaged.
