Hi all,
I have a 1973 cheetah 400, the clutch side cyl has very little spark, sometimes it is fine, but now and then it drops off. im assuming that i need a new coil. does anyone know a good place to get one?


Thanks
Kurt

ok, now i feel stupid,

I went thru the hasstle of pulling the flywheel, cleaning and gaping the pionts (a total of 2 times) shot to the local sled shop for plugs. assumed that the coil was shot, then posting to see if anyone knew where to buy a coil. Today i flipped coils, and very little spark in the coil, so now i know that the coil is the problem. I spend about an hour searching online for a dirrect replacement coil, and it hits me. what if the coils wire end is bad? I go to the sled shop, and pick up a coouple replacement ends, and there it is, spark. I broke the cardinal rule ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS look at the easiest solution first


I figured i would post this to remind other people what to look for.
