LOTS OF GOOD SUGGESTIONS BUT NO SOLUTION SO FAR.
HAVE YOU CHECKED THE KILL SWITCH BUTTON, RIGHT COVER.
SEE IF THE BUTTON IS FROZEN IN THE KILL POSITION (UNLIKELY)OR
SEE IF THE KILL SWITCH LEAF IS BENT INWARD TO KILL POSITION (POSSIBLE). YOU WOULD HAVE TO REMOVE THE COVER TO SEE THAT.
GOOD LUCK. STILL SCRATCHING MY HEAD REGARDING THIS ONE.

Help!im trying to get my restored 63 scat started, and seem to have a problem!
I don't seem to have spark at the spark plug. The motor was restored rebuilt a couple years ago but I've never had it started.
I also put. A new wiring harness.
Now I notice when I'm kicking it, if I hold the horn button in while kicking, the horn will go off in a pattern like the engine turning over. But, the bike doesn't seem to have spark at the spark plug. Yet I've checked all connections
So now I don't understand why the horn wire seems hot, but bike doesn't have spark or start.
Thanks in advance.. Gene
