sorry for no updates, but i ended up ohming out the " Chinese" coil i got with a overseas stator plate. the ohms jumped around some (and i didn't have my fingers on the leads) ,i didnt really think much about it.. i installed it anyway, and it never did rev out...just stayed in the retarded spark mode. so as a last ditch effort, i got a pw50 performance coil,for $21, and it fired right up!! steady ohms at 272... or maybe it was 256? i dont really remember, but didnt fluctuate like the chinese one did ... so its running, the 3 way key magically works great now. i m in the process of cleaning and painting her up!
