Intermittent spark .. express

Got a real nice 1980 Honda express,, thought I had no spark .. put tester in end of boot, and it lit up ! So I should have spark right? New plug spark? Whaaaaat

You have the gap set correctly on both the plug and the tester? Would you happen to be using the wrong plug?

New plugs are not immune to being bad .

I would test coil resistance and reset point gap. Also gap the spark plug.

Always try the easiest thing first .

Test that tester a few times in the boot to make sure the result is not intermittent . Then test that new plug . Or , try a different new plug .
