Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

100% correct. but its easier to get people to check problems using voltage without adding ohms law into the equation.

as long as all three outputs are the same and MORE than 70VAC and less than 90VAC you have a healthy stator.

the more voltage the stator kicks out the more the regulator has to work so produces a...

if it was running then not think of the last thing you done.

Re: Pointy no spark
