Try starting fluid first, cheap and quick. If it hits then you know its gas related. But don't spray too much to foul your plug. If it never does hit then timing, electrical etc. That's pretty much all that I know. Hope it helps.
Tail light out(may not apply)? Checked all wiring, could have unplugged something or wire got corroded? Tried removing the plug, holding the plug wire while touching the base to motor casing to see the spark?(edit: never mind, you had good spark.) Tried starting with starter fluid with petcock set to off(if it has one), carb drained(if possible) and spark plug dry to get a second of runtime? Yo
Wow, it looks like I never responded... Life got in the way.... So, update to what happened next in case this thread comes up in someone's search. From what I can remember, tail light was corroded and was messing with the voltage. Also the thyristor plastic was cracked making it dodgy, built my own using the big yellow capacitor, plans can be found. Put it in a plastic snuff can and zip t
OK, thanks. Yes these are the thin hairpin looking clips. The manual called them circlips. I was able to hammer down a paper clip cut into pieces and pinch them closed temporarily. Works for now. Now I need to find a new rubber gasket for the petcock. The Honda one that I put in it before is now stretched and torn.
Somehow lost both clips for the starter clutch. Was thinking of trying paper clips but not sure if I could trust that type of metal. Anyone run into this? Tips, replacements? Thanks guys.
Ok, well I had it set to 40k on the meter. I had cleaned the inside of the HT coil where the cable goes because it had some rust and still nothing. So I did something that I would think really shouldn't do anything but it seems to have done something. What I did was I took my 12 volt drill battery and connected it to the I and spark portion of the coil and let it sit for a few seconds and
I've got a Jawa 207.So, I tested the HT coil according to the wiki and across I and 1 I get what appears to be 1.5 ohms. When i connect between 1 and the spark plug wire part I get nothing. Same with I. So I guess it's bad.Now, this coil is not on the bike, would grounding or anything else give me these results without it being bad?I haven't tried it yet because I have things apa
Thank you Qroject. I truly appreciate the help. I just cruised the Autozone site. I will grab one of those Champion 327, or Autolite 425 plugs and see where it leads me. I will give an update later on this week as I also want to help those in a similar situation, in case my issues can relate to them.Just in case my coil is bad, would you have any idea if one of those Beetle coils (part # LU800)
I am going to get a new plug. I don't know if what I have is correct or not. Would you know what I need? where is a good reference? I don't know what a PAL 14-5, 145-175 Heat Range equivalent is for Autolite or Champion.I tested ohms accross the coil from terminal 1 and 15 and I got 1.5 ohms. I don't know if that right.I thought these were 6 volt... Is there a way to hook up a
Hey thanks, I appreciate your time. I will redo the timing for 1.5mm before TDC and I will also try and do the coil test with a 9volt battery as found here in the forum.I found the manual, it does have a lot more info that the pdfs I have found, and will give it a good read.
Hello all, I am new to this group. 1979 Jawa 207 Babetta .Please allow me to jump in with some questions. I got this moped from a friend. I got it to run once and it ran well but the tires were bad so I ordered some. When the tires arrived I could no longer start it. So I got to testing.Does anyone know what the ohms should be across a ignition coil? I don't seem to be getting a good s
