So when I moved into this house, there was a bike in the back shed that the landlord said was left behind like 5 tenants ago. The registration sticker on the plate expired in 87 lol.
I spent the summer cleaning and rebuilding her and now I'm seeing zero spark. I think I figured it out but jus looking for some info.
The battery is showing 6.4v, and then the hot wire splits off.. one goes into a harness through the frame so who knows where that goes off to lol, but the other ties into a little black matchbox sized thing with polarity and a diode symbol. Not sure what it's called, bit seems important.. When I go from pos. To the frame I see 6.4v, but when i go neg. To frame i see .8v.. so i wanna say my issue is this voltage restriction right off the hop. When I ohm it out my meter shows OL which doesnt make sense cause I saw .8v with power but maybe diodes are tricky..
So basically I just want affirmation that having .8v through the diode is a problem..or is that what it's supposed to do. I dont know where the other wire is going but it should be carrying 6v to a coil or something down by the spark plug.
Side note- I'm seeing a solid 6v from the wire that connects to the spark plug to the frame.. should that be steady voltage or should that be like a pulse to spark the spark plug in sequence? Not sure how the firing system would work either but that also seems fishy to me..
