Help!

Hey all, although I spend most of my time over on the Jeepster bbs, I thought I would ask you guys a question. I have a 1985 Honda CR 250 (has never given me a problem). Well I let it sit For about a year while I restored my Jeep and now it wont start. I have done all the basics new gas ,new plug, checked all areas of fuel passage and everything is good. I then checked my stator and alternator and coil, all within specs. It appears that it's my CDI ignition, but Honda wants $230.00 bucks for it and I can't return it if it's not the problem. Manual say's can only be checked with another known good one. Well I don't want to part with that much cash if it's not the problem. Any ideas? where can you find a used supplier of these? Would I be risking to much buying used? Thanks in advance.

Re: Help!

Have you checked to see if the new plug is getting spark? I'm not familiar enough with the CDI to know if it can malfunction and still provide juice to the plug, just not enough, or if it's an all on/off situation.

Re: Help!

Yes, I pulled the plug out and ground it to the cylinder head while cranking it over & there is no spark. I did a search and someone mentioned a company that rebuilds them. Anyone have a phone #?

Re: Help!

Already did that as part of the basic tests. Plug is good. Wish it was that easy! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
