So I have been given a Honda 1982 NU50. I have no idea what I'm doing, it hasn't ran in 10+ years, is missing parts, and I'm very much learning on the fly, particularly from posts here and youtube videos.
My overarching issue is that I have no spark. I have at this time replaced the CDI, Ignition Coil and spark plug. From what I can tell these are all the most common problems.
And then I discovered that I was missing an ignition key. When i found the connector for the key however, it has more wires than in the wiring diagram. On the diagram it has a black with white tracer, a red, a green and a black. However, mine also has 2 black with red tracer wires.
After searching online, I believe that I could put these together to bypass the switch. I put the black and red wires together. Then disassembled the off/run/off switch to connect the greens together and the black with white traces together. Which left me with the 2 mystery black with red tracers...which I put together, because I have no idea what I'm doing. I believe this is all correct. So if it isnt, please let me know.
Unfortunately after connecting them all, still no spark. So I bought a new ignition key which stated it would work on a NU50. However, when it came, it only has a red, green, black with white tracer and black that 2 wires can plug into. Can I use this switch? How? Should I just continue to ignore the mystery black with red tracer wires and leave them together?
Ultimately, as this still produced no spark, I thought I probably have a more serious issue and despite reading that it was very rare, I moved on to checking the stator. From the video I watched, I checked continuity on all the wires. My meter reads the continuity and beeps for every wire coming off the stator, except the black with red tracer wire coming off the stator. The black with red tracer wire goes to one side of the stator while all the other wires go to the other side (and the blue in the middle). I thought I possibly had a break in the wire so I examined it completely and theres no breaks. When I go from one end of the wire to where it is soldered on to the stator it does beep, which implies to me that the wire itself has continuity and the issue is with that section of the stator specifically.
I have found a new stator on ebay, but I wanted to make sure before I pulled the trigger on it that someone more experienced than I am agreed that my stator is likely at fault here.
I have included pictures of the wiring system I got going on. I'm sorry they aren't more clear. Additionally I included a picture of the stator and a close up of where I am placing the meter to get continuity on the black with red tracer wire. I'm sorry for this wall of text, I'm not sure how much info to include.
At this point any help would be immensely appreciated.
