Troubleshoot no spark on an 1998 Arctic Cat 300 4x4 ATV
I recently aquired a neglected 1998 Arctic Cat 300 4x4 ATV. It was owned by an 83 year old man that rode it in his seventies. Not very many hours on it but it sat for long periods of time.
I unloaded it under a high power line in a residential area and was amazed at the static type shocks from it. I replaced a relay near the battery and purchased a new battery and had it running for a short time. It was running and just quit. I thought it was not getting gas at first. I drained the tank and put new gas in. I took the carb apart and cleaned it which was one problem. Now however I am not getting any spark at the plug. What would be the best way to troubleshoot this problem of no spark? Could the static from the power lines burned something?
