B-110 coil replacement questions
Posted May 05, 2011 - 03:09 PM
the good news is I got the nut off the flywheel and I can see the slot from the flywheel is lined up with the slot in the shaft and the key is intact.
the bad news is I still have a problem of no spark .

This thing keeps screaming bad ground or connection somewhere every time I think about it.

well here's something, when I take the coil wire off the common post, on the backplate, I find there is continuity from the end of that wire to ground. How can that be ?
Didn't see this when I replied before. If you are checking the wire coming from the coil it should have continuity to ground. You are checking the resistence of the primary side of the coil. This will be 1 to 2 ohms. You should also have continuity from the secondary to ground but you will have to read it on the K-ohms scale.

I get a similar continuity check on the end of the condenser wire. Is that also normal ?
What else can I check ? My knowledge is exhausted and I could sure use any help I can get.

I tried using different old parts and new parts. I ended up using a combination of old points, new condenser and new coil. Not sure if that was the cure or just taking things apart and putting them back together. I'm glad either way.
Thanks to all for for your help and hanging with me .

Now that you have spark, add fuel & air & post a video of it running!

I'm going to have to find a source for the right yellow AC paint first.
