Re: 816 No Spark
Warheadrevo, I kept having issues with the points glazing and causing problems. I tried changing the condenser and points with some luck; after a couple years I found out about a kind of electrical ignition called “Points Saver”. It makes it so the points are used for the timing circuit and a lower voltage is used through the points.
I also think there are 3 magnets on the flywheel, I’ll try to remember to dig out a old flywheel I have stashed away to make sure.
Never argue with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
