Mag worked on bench, but no fire installed!
« on: 29.08. 2016 18:42 »
Hi guys,

I can probably answer my own question, but here's hopes for ideas before I pull the mag back off!

I cut out the stock condenser wires, soldered them together and installed my easy cap.  Cleaned everything up, good carbons, all checks well.  Good blue spark rotating with the drill and plugs clamped to mag housing.

After install, no spark.  I removed the end cap first, no spark,  and then the earth brush, but still no spark.

Ideas? ( I know, remove the mag and see what failed)
