Found on one of the points the insulator was missing. Fixed that. No short
now, but still no spark. Only thing we haven't changed out is the entire mag
and the wiring harness, tho it's a brand new wiring harness!
We are all baffled and would appreciate some ideas.
Thanks in advance.. Gene

Still no spark. I found a couple wires that on my 62 pacer were wired a
certain way, and that bike runs. However, the wiring diagram in the service
book shows it different. I wired the scat like the wiring diagram. So, I
switched the wires like the pacer...still no spark to the plug. I swapped the
coil spark plug wire and spark plug...still no spark. I've tried it with the
cover off and no spark so it isn't the kill switch.Dan derby looked at it...still
no spark! Admittedly we didn't have an ohm meter. Maybe I will go buy one
today. One that beeps when there's current.i have not tried switching entire
mag and I have switched individual condensers etc from within the mag.. I
am taking the seat to Dixon, so maybe someone will see it and say voila
there's the problem!
Any other suggestions I would appreciate!

GENE, TRY SWAPPING OUT THE CONDENSER FROM PRECIOUS

I tried coil and spark plug wire and spark plug from my 62
pacer but, but
still no spark. I compared the wiring hookups, and
discovered a mistake I
made when wiring the 63. I had wire form coil and wire
from condenser
under the screw holding points in place, and wire connected
to rear fender
under the screw that hold those same points together. I
switched them all,
but probably screwed up that set of points while doing it!
The bike still has
no spark to the plug!

I agree with mark. You can pick a 6v coil
at the local farm supply and see if that helps.

Are you sure the coil is good?

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
