So I've got my Moby malossi/ducati CDI all set up. flywheel is seated well and timing is set to 1.8mm before top dead center. wires go from stator to box as indicated in the instructions and the box is grounded to the frame on a bolt that is clean and the frame (at the ground point) has been sanded and cleaned to ensure a good clean ground. From the box it is wired to the regulator which is also grounded well.

Continuity tests show the engine and case are grounded to the frame, but the thing just doesn't spark. The boot and plug wire are new and have been heat shrinked and are solid.

Spinning the flywheel by hand as you would with points yields no spark and ONE time when we I wrapped the flywheel with a belt and my buddy held the plug to the head while I pull started it he claimed it sparked, but on subsequent pull start tests I've gotten no spark.

What the fuck gives? Did I get a shit box? I thought these things were supposed to work well? I thought they were rock solid? Fucking CDI's.
