It took several hours to figure out how to hook the seat up to the fender, it was previously straight bolted, I ordered all the correct hardware now it slides at different settings cool

Lookin' sharp! Wish I had the funds to make mine look that good, she's a strictly-trade toy for now. Thanks for the inspiration!

HELP

I'm really disappointed, I Decided to start up the machine today, the first time after the restoration, the engine cranks fine, it has fuel flow to the carb, but wont start? I took the coil wire off at the spark plug and held it up above the top of the plug approx. 1/8" and cranked the engine I see no spark? (the spark plug is brand new) what could it be.

 

 A little background in case you don't remember when I first brought it home from the ranch I rebuilt the carb and it started the first crank after sitting on the ranch since 91.

 

PS I did the trick that Travis Rccm to me on page 2, I put a screw driver in the coil wire end and cranked it touching the screw driver to the head (NO SPARK)

Start by checking for power at the coil. Recheck the gap on the points. If that's all good replace the condenser. Its really cheap and don't really know how to test it. Did you ever leave the key on for a period of time while not running. That can burn points up. No spark is not alarming. The highest priced part in that system is the coil.

I left the key in but off and battery disconnected until today, its weird that the coil would go bad, but it is very old

Spain,

 

Make sure that all of your needed grounding areas, are getting the proper ground. Fresh paint will keep the electrical system from getting the proper ground which will keep your system from having spark.

johndeereelfman which grounding areas?, the battery wire is grounded to the head, it cranks so I assume that part works, the blue wire comes from the positive solenoid goes into a white block on the front of the motor then a wire runs off that to the coil it looks hooked up right

I had the same thing happen with the 120. One of my grounds was not good.  I ended up using those star washers that break the paint on several mounting points.  I don't recall where it was...

I dont recall it having any individual grounds? I only remember the wiring harness having QD's but I will look

I had the coil out before, does the positive post wire go to the wire from the resistor and the negative post wire go to the points and condenser? Want to ensure I installed it right

The points and condenser handle the negative (ground) side. The positive side should have battery power (12V). You can check the coil by just jumping power straight from the battery to it and cranking the engine. If it get spark, start looking at the wiring before the coil.
