NAA quit running???

Hey guys!! I was working on my property today with my naa when all of a sudden it died on me. Tried to start it back up no luck. It turns over strong but no spit or sputter to give any indication that it wants to start. Plenty of gas, getting gas to the carb....also took the carb off and cleaned it with no luck. I'm stuck and not that knowledgeable with them. What could it possibly be and what would be some next check points to hit. Thanks!!

If it fails again in the near future, check the wire between the
coil and the distributor/points. Where it passes through the side
of the distributor is a common failure point.

The insulation breaks down and it will intermittently ground out.

Changing the coil may have jarred the wire enough to un-ground it.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Will do! That actually was my next plan to redo the wiring on it. That could have been a good possibility to it failing on me, as it appears the isulation is separating. Thank you!

Ok checked the points and I have no spark. Is there any way it could be the coil or probably just the points? Just trying to check before I go into town. Thank you

The points would spark no matter how far gone they are if juice is getting to them -- maybe the coil to dist wire is at fault.

Then like the man said, test your ignition switch.

Pick yourself up a couple of little alligator clips and make up a jumper/test wire that you can clip to ignition terminals.

Could be a bad key switch. Could be I say, because that is an easy thing to check. Just jumper across the switch with a piece of wire and see if the spark returns. Don't forget to remove the jumper after checking or you may end up with a coil or point problem.

Sounds like you've ruled out fuel delivery (unless you smelled gas and it flooded before it died.)

So, think electrical. Turn the key on and open the points from a closed position and see if they spark.

if OK

check the points for wear and deposits and gap

clean the rotor tip with fine emery

and razor knife the dist cap poles inside to chip off any scale.
Twist and steel wool the cap pole sockets

Unless of course they are already clean as a whistle. :D
Look for loose electrical connections everywhere.
