Hi:

I have a Buckeye 582 PPC. A few weeks ago one of my coils (Magnetos) quit working. (tested by grounding out the other one)

I replaced the coil with a new one and the new one wont work either.

Any way to test a coil to see if it is good?

Any other ideas of what may be the issue?

Thanks!

bob

First check the mag output voltage from the case.
Check impulse pickups for pulse.
Make sure there is no ground on the kill wire.
The CDI is built into the coil assembly, if all reads out well then the CDI is blown

1999, may still be a gray head with points if if that's the year. Is it single or redundant coils
If it's a model 99 then it is a blue head with CDI
