1981 Honda PA50 no spark

Matthew Desormeaux /

ok so I am dealing iwht a no spark. i tried a new coil and checked points and still no go but what i discovered is one of the copper wrapped magneto magnets is soldered, so possibly that. so now i am on the hunt for the front side magnet on the magneto. let me know if you have one.

Re: 1981 Honda PA50 no spark

There are no copper wrapped magnets in any magneto .

You likely mean one of the coils .

Post a pic of what you have .

See what color it connects to and identify/replace specific coil.

Re: 1981 Honda PA50 no spark

Looks like maybe that top coil has seen better days .

I'd unwind the 'jammed' layers and paint the wire to re-insulate it . Then rewind it and see what you have .

That^ or find a different coil .

Yeah , that's the easy way .

You could have your current coil in working order in less than ah hour , if you got your hands dirty . ;)

i have a feeling the wire is broke in a few places, and looks like the plastic got a little hot at some point. never wound a coil but i am sure there are videos.

i bought it like this.

so just to further this, the wire feeding the coil is White? is this the spark coil?

Yah unfortunately, i have looked at these but they are a bit complex for my knowledge in electrical.

So , don't look at the whole picture . Find a start point and just follow the lines to it's end . Pretty simple . Like going to the bathroom .

White is the ac coil. Ignition coil.
