Hello Members - I bought a 78 Honda Gold wing GL1000 4 cylinder without knowing anything about it except it ran poorly. Found out it was just running on 2 cylinders. Opened up points cover to see it had a Dyna S Ignition system. Is that a CDI system? I ordered Accel Super Coil Kit Inductive Discharge 4 Cylinder (Two-Coil) 140403. Installed and do not getting any spark. I know because I have one of those lights you plug into spark plug wire. The only spark I get is when I turn the ignition key from run to off. It's just a quick flash of spark when you decide to turn key off. Did I order the wrong coils? Should I have ordered 140404? What can I do to get my Honda Gold wing running? Read somewhere that wires of 140403 be reversed to act like it is an Inductive ignition system? Don

The Dyna has failed, not all that uncommon. No it is not CDI, it is an electronic ignition module to replace the points. If it were mine I would find the needed parts and go back to a points ignition. At least it can be fixed.
