Ignition coil wiring

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble getting a spark from the ignition coil. I feel like something is missing. I am getting power to the ignition coil from the ballast resistor but something isn't right. (see attached image) any advice is appreciated.

It looks like you are missing the lead from the the coil to the centre of the dizzy.

What does or doesn't it do??

Do you get 12V at the coil with the key on?  12V when you're cranking?

Do you get 12V at the points when the key is on and the points open?

If you have a short where the wire goes into the dizzy or at the points the coil won't work.
