No spark.

1978 Moby I put a new coil on but no spark. New wire and plug as well.

Points next or something else?

Re: No spark.

Gonna have to do the whole check:

check all ignition wiring from coil, points, condenser, HT coil, plug etc

check for faulty grounded kill switch

clean and polish flywheel points cam

clean and set points

Re: No spark.

Any tutorials on how to work through this

Re: No spark.

So I pedal the bike pretty hard and none of the light go on, but the horn does give a really weak sound if I hit that button. Not sure if this helps the diagnosis.

Start with Fred's Guide

Ground issue, clean and clean, no oxidation, rust, oil, grease and paint. Remove flywheel and clean points, rust on internal coil faces and check or replace condenser. Rebel Moby uses a external condenser. I went to a La Parti CDI. Pm me with a mobile #.

Re: No spark.

Diagnosed and put in a new coil. We now have spark. A huge thanks for Rickard Eberline, aka rockettman. He was such a huge help! He is the reason why these groups work.
