1976 Garelli flex no spark

i bought a 1976 Garelli moped that didn't start the guy said the problem was the carb but has no spark. i chased it down to the ignition coil. where can i get another ignition coil? and are their any other things that would effect the spark?

thanks, Tom

Clean and gap the points. Make sure taillight bulb is good. Change spark plug.

i changed the tail light and put a new spark plug in and it still has no spark. what else could i do?

Clean the points. I have found that dirty points are the culprit 99% of the time.

ok i will try that thanks for the help.

Re: 1976 Garelli flex no spark

make sure the points are opening when rotating the flywheel, keep the points cam felt oiled, check for rust on the points cam, which will grind the points closed. cam must be polished clean.

Clean the points with a file and rinse with brake cleaner. Change the condenser.
