Any recommendations? I suspect my coils are failing. I might be jumping the gun, but are there aftermarket coils that people have used and recommended?
Thanks! I'll measure my primary voltage.
Do you have just one, or a pair available?I have a used oem that I'll sell to you. I thought I needed it when I lost power to a cylinder but it was a grounded pickup coil
I didn't have time to measure cold this morning, but hot measurements seem fine. However, I just noticed in the manual that the measurements are supposed to include the plug wires! I measured at the coil itself. :doh:I thought the tests on your coils, hot/cold, looked ok.
Voltage is everything on this ignition. I have a theory that low voltage causes the CDi to retard timing, via that wire branching off the start circuit to the CDI. Pretty easy to check the theory, but never had time/energy to get it done.So as to not be another DenverCoder9 (https://xkcd.com/979/), I discovered the issue was actually corrosion on the stator connections. My charging voltage was low. After several hours on the trickle charger, it ran great!
I'm changing my coil wiring over the winter to run direct (through a relay) with higher gauge wiring.
