Richard Camacho /

I have a 1979 garelli grand sport dosen't start complete rebuilt engine upgraded to

Magneto ignition from treatland not sure if the coil wire is producing any spark I try pedalling dont see any spark however when I start pedalling the head light and tail light work I try several positions on the top dead center a markings on the stator with no luck I did follow the instructions as written in the instructions I change to a new dellorto carb still does not fire up or back fire when changing positions on the flywheel. Can someone out who had several problems with the new stater magneto from treatland. Tv moped parts in California.

What all parts did you actually install in the ignition?

It's easy to time the HPI on a Garelli. At least mine was.
