Wouldn't that bypass the coil? The resistor is between the coil and the dizzy. Should I jump the bat+ to coil+?
If it is a 12 volt conversion *and* has a 6 volt coil the resistor should be between switch and the coil or the battery and the coil. I suppose it won't damage anything, but I am not a big fan of jumping things like this, I prefer to use a meter.
Were it me I would verify spark. It there is weak spark or no spark I would get out the old multimeter and verify I was getting power to the coil. And then continue troubleshooting based on that finding.
I would want to verify it was a spark problem and not a fuel problem or something else prior to starting messing with the electrical system. My to30 would try to start but die right away. I pulled the drain from the float bowl on the carb and found very little fuel flowing. The filter and line were full of rust and other debris. This post was edited by overhead at 05:29:45 08/24/12.
