I guess my post from this morning got lost.So here's what happened, and thanks to everyone again. I was able to go home this morning, and within a few minutes get things back like they were before I thumbed them all up. I have however learned a little about these ignition systems due to all this. First , and I know this isn't usually the case with these bikes that have set up for long periods, I created problems by not taking the time to systematically troubleshoot. Like if you swap 2 wires and nothing happens, put them back!! I had a miss before rebuilding the carbs I thought might be one of the plug caps. So i put new caps on the wires. When I put the carbs back on, no fire at 3/4. So i pull the whole coil assy. off. Ohmed it, Ok. Put the coils back on and either didn't hook up one of the primary supply wires, or it came unhookedwhen putting back together. Before finding that problem I had moved on to swapping the bl/y and y leads to the points, and forgot to swap them back. Now i put on new points and condenser, and somehow one set of points get grounded.Find the Blk/w wire unhooked , thanks to a poster here, still have coils swapped.
At this point all I'm getting is backfires and no ignition, not even 2 cyl's, like before, I know the carbs are good, so its definitely ignition. Timing I suspect. Go through the static timing ,setting points, still no voltage at grounded set, etc. etc.Read a few moreposts lastnight, went home, swapped the coils back, fired first time.rolled the engine around to open the dead points, pulled the points set, had 4.5 v. to thethem.What a cluster.So nowits going. Not sure what caused the points to ground, but Ishould add, they were off ebay, andnot the"double spring"design.Cheap. They are working for now, I'll be synching tomorrow.
Was my timing 180 out? Myvulcan mind finds that hard to comprehend. Anyway thanks everyone. Reading old threads and taking a little time to think made the difference.
