john[mo] said: (quoted from post at 20:39:45 08/23/12) try a new switch or get a jumper with clips and run from battery + to ballast resistor and see if it stays running.

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.

It has weak spark, but enuff to get it started, I think. I'm going to put a new real 12v coil on it and rewire it to what I think it should be, hopefully I can pull the diagram off the fergy website mentioned. I'm not much of a resistor or square can coil fan so I get rid off them when the opportunity arises. The coil is attached on it's side and looks like it has a clear liquid seeping out of the top wire plug, so it's got to go. The machine wants to run and I can't wait to see it happen. Then trouble shooting begins. Hydraulics, tranny, steering,...etc...Thanks to all.
