Hey guys I’m new to this forum and I just traded a beat up Ford Ranger for a beat up 87 tw200. The guy I got it from said he was riding it about 30 miles everyday to work and it ran great (of course), but one day he was riding it in the rain and it just sputtered out and hasn’t started since. The battery is now dead from me trying to get it started but the kick should be able to start it even without any charge right? I’ve tested all the safety switches and connections with a multimeter. Basically everything the repair manual says to do when troubleshooting the ignition system. I determined that the ignition coil was out of spec so I ordered one from eBay and put it in. It’s a cheap one and the spark plug wire literally gets twisted into a screw that comes out of the side of the unit. It works a little better and I do have a spark now, but I’m afraid that because of the way the spark plug wire attaches to a screw that it’s not the strongest connection/spark. I’ve also pulled the carb off and its super clean. Judging by the size and cleanliness of the jets/gaskets/orings it looks to me like someone put the aftermarket carb rebuild kit in there fairly recently. So before I order a new CDI, is it possible that the cheap ignition coil is just generating a weak spark? If so where can I buy a nicer one?
