Hello happy helpers... I'm in a bad spot with my moped...
Earlier this summer... my grande was running well. I let it sit for possibly four or five days without running (in which time it rained a lot). My next time out, I couldn't start it up. I have good compression, and after trying to start it a few times, I can smell the gas.
I did the "spark check" and didn't get a spark... I then bought a new plug, and was still unable to get a spark out of it.
I put in a new plug and cable about one year ago... so they are both somewhat new.
I took the ped up to the local shop, but they no longer do repair on the old-school mopeds.
Points and condensers?
Remember though, that I am completely incompetent when it comes to repair... I know nothing about the inner workings. I've been told that replacing the points/condensers or cleaning the carb "isn't very hard" but I'd really need a step by step instruction... and I don't have a manual for the bike either... so... yah.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm about two seconds away from tossing it into the dumpster!
