I got the V50 running great! Thanks for all the help. The problem was the condenser. I took the one from my parts bike and installed it, it fired right up and runs perfectly. FWIW both condensers had the same resistance according to my two OHM meters. They both showed open or infinate. I don't think that you check them that way. I have several different NOS VW condensers and they also showed open on the meters. I really don't think 6V condensers are any different from 12V condensers. I have done many 6 to 12 volt conversions on old VW's and never had any problems with them. The coil does matter for sure though. Thanks again: DT
