Response to:18110
First of all, thank you both very much for your time and responses...spent
all day on it and neither coil is getting any power so I can only assume its
the rotor. I sanded the points and cleaned all contacts as well as tried a
new ignition coil. There is a 3 position switch on the side of her and I tried
all 3 positions too. There is a spare wire that's not connected on either end
but its too short to go to the anything important. If either of you have a
wiring diagram for the whole bike I'd appreciate it..all I could find was the
mag rotor PDF on here. Thanks again guys, and Stan I'll be in contact
ASAP, thanks again!

Nice Bobcat. Clean the plate-to-coil plates & all electrical connections. Mine
didn't spark so I measured then took the points off, cleaned everything put
it all back together & I got spark, just not timed. no key on the rotor.While
you've got it off check that the magnito coils have continuity and no
grounding. Stan's solution is common remember it's been 55 years since
latest charging of the magnets.

Hi Paul First try the sanding of the points.It sometimes does the job. I
Recharge the rotors,It cost $30 plus shipping. My address is in the parts
section of this site also my ph. number if you need more info on the bike.

NEW GUY HERE AND IM LOST AFTER TAKING BIKE TO MY LOCAL
HARLEY DEALER. I HAVE NO SPARK ON MY BOBCAT BUT WAS
TOLD THEY GOT SPARK WHEN THEY POWERED THE CONDENSER
WITH A BATTERY. BEING TOLD I NEED THE MAG RE-ENERGIZED
AND THEY DONT KNOW WHERE TO GET THAT DONE, BUT THEY
DON'T SEEM VERY KNOWLEDGABLE ON THE OLDER BIKES AS I
WAS TOLD I NEEDED THE SAME SERVICE ON MY TOPPER AND I
FIXED IT BY SANDING THE POINTS. I HAVEN'T ATTEMPTED TO
SAND THE BOBCAT'S YET AS I JUST GOT IT BACK FROM THEM,
HOPING TO SOAK UP SOME OF THE KNOWLEDGE FROM ANY AND
ALL THAT MAY BE ABLE TO HELP! THANK YOU!
