Connect a temporary ground from the crankcase to a clean place on the frame. If the horn is squeaking when kicked over it may indicate that the horn connection is the only place where there is a ground. If the engine and frame are not positively grounded to each other your system does not make a complete circuit.

What?!? I paint it all pretty and now Im Expected to scratch up said paint
job? Where are the grounds you speak of??? I did sand the outside of the
external coil and the bracket and the bolts there. The wires to rear fender
has insulators, so it doesn't ground there. I'm not sure where else. Help!!!

Gene, check your GROUNDS ! You have painted and or powder
coated the frame and it's very likely you need to remove
those coatings at the grounding points.

A buddy of mine almost went crazy a few years back due to
a similar problem. It turned out to be a copper wire in
the ignition system that didn't pass electricity. There
was something wrong with the copper. He finally stripped
off all the rubber insulation and found the bare wire
unbroken but showed NO continuity from end to end
(checked with ohm meter). It sat on a special hook in his
workshop as a reminder. The only other thing I can think
of without being there to look at everything is the
possibility your rotor has lost its magnetism. Does it
pull the tip of a screwdriver into it?

Hello people.
The scat still has no spark. I've changed the spark plug
plug wire, external coil, condensers, both internal
coils, adjusted points both sets. .
Only thing I haven't changed is the entire mag thio
really what else would that change? Since I've replaced
all the pieces.all the pieces came off my 63 pacer by
which runs fine. E scat has a new wiring harness too.
There were six Pete hanging out around the bike today and
we are all baffled.
Brent Dugan, do you have any ideas? How about you dave
Mutt, Duane, Chris, john, Dan, mark, And none else I may
have forgotten to mention, I appreciate all the ideas.
Tried them all. Still no luck.
The bike will be going to Dixon and anyone who wants to
look while there I would sure appreciate!
Anyone got an idea, please help.
Dave, instead of being quiet as you say members are on
here, how about chiming in on one of my posts?!? Also,
hope you post pictures from and even comment on the
harley hummer hospitality hut in Dixon this year. We
will. Retained send you pictures!
