I'd rather replace a $30 coil than a $120 muffler any day! Not only is it cheaper, it's a lot less work. I'll probably replace both on mine.
There are two different coils used on Harley's. one 5 ohm resistance for points ignition and one 3 ohm resistance for electronic ignition. Is one better than the other for these engines?
LOL, yeah I switched those around there in that post.
I checked the spark and before running it, it was getting stronger spark on the left side. Both plugs were dry and caked with a loose carbon. Was going to run it until it started acting up and check again, but after starting it, it died after two minutes and I cant get it restarted. Too hot to messwith it today.
I think Im going to go ahead and buy a new coil, plug wires, and plugs and see what that does. Im looking for a muffler as well in better shape than mine.
