I have a columbia commuter moped with a sachs 47cc 505 engine. I have recently purchased it, and got it running. now it keeps fouling out plugs, and there is/ never was any power to the tail light or the headlight. however, the brake light works. and when i tested the wires coming out of the engine with a test light (5 wires) they all seemed to be connected.

this did not seem to be right to me, but i cannot explain why the brake light would work then. I also think that the moped might not be getting a hot enough spark. anyone have any suggestions on what i should look at? i cleaned off the points a little with some sand paper, but didnt think that would be the cause of the lights not working. ???? i am stumped...
