Re: No spark!!!!

What puzzles me is, nothing had been touched regarding the engine, so how could the pick up points on the flywheel, or the flywheel itself fail? Strange world of Lambrettas

Re: No spark!!!!

Your suggestion was taken on board Daggs, just couldn't get hold of one til Sunday. It was all a process of elimination in the end. Flywheel was the last resort, everything else had been checked or replaced. Thanks for your comments :-)

Re: No spark!!!!

I've done the test on all three wires from the stator, red, white and green, and all readings are consistent with what it says in Sticks book. Reading on the green is 448 ohms

Re: No spark!!!!

Scooters still in build so only wired up to get it running. Green, red and white from the stator all connected to the cdi in the correct places. Cdi is earthed. Earth lead from mag housing to frame.
