Re: Minarelli and no spark
ha yea, cleaning points becomes one of those things you learn to check first.
check spark. no? try new plug, check wiring and clean points.
I think you just learned that anyway so I dunno why I typed it.
you can, if needed, use a condenser yea from old VW. as you've also likely learned, asking at a parts store for a part without a specific car model and year to offer is hopeless.
