no spark

Ok, i've checked my ignition system and the culprit is that I get no spark out of the four wires. Also the voltage from the ignition coil to the distributor is 8 volts. Can anyone help me out why I'm not getting any spark? I've tested both the new and old components and BOTH were not getting any spark so I know it's most likely that the parts are both bad.

Re: no spark

I knew it :-) Replace the cap, rotor and plugs, try that. MAke sure you battery is in good, make sure all the wires going and cooming from the coil are good and tight. Try replacing the coil, or just borrow one from somone to see if thats the problem.It could be your not getting any power to the coil, like if the igntion switch was jut activating the starter or somthing.. Try putting a wire to the + post on the coil, let me know what happens

Re: no spark

check your fuses to mae sure they are both good and seated correctly, the contacts will sometimes spread apart
where you insert the fuse I had that happen to the weasel when I first bought it. You should take a GOOD look at it.
you can bend them back together with a small screwdriver. also check to make sure all the connecters going to the dist are tight, (Unplug them and replug them,) and there should be a ground wire from the bottom of the dist to
the firewall. Hope some of this helps.
