Im not familliar with this bike, but it sounds like the coils are powered from the positive battery, and the igniter module provides the ground signal to fire the coils. check ignition fuse and then check igniter module. maybe this may help.

What is the hot side of the coil so I can hot wire to see if I can get spark also to check to see if coil still is goood


The wire that goes to the distributor is the ground side of the coil. The other side is the positive side. Be careful if you plan to connect 12 volts to this terminal on the car, as most cars have a ballast resistor between the 12 volts and the positive of the coil. If you connect 12 volts directly to the coil you may burn out the coil. You are better to use a multimeter to check the coil as that will not damage it.

Without a voltmeter and a wiring diagram, you're in a bit of a fix. But I would be wondering why the ignition switch isn't sending power to the coil primary positive terminal, and why it isn't causing the fuel pump to be turned on, too.
Is your check engine light on with key on? The computer should sense ignition is on and briefly turn on the fuel pump through the fuel pump relay, on just long enough to pressurize the fuel line to the injector. But no fuel or fire-you'd better start by checking if the ignition switch has power in and power out, and work your way to the coil.

I have a international 127 cub cadet and replaced the coil with a 12 volt internale reg coil but still have not spark points look good


You need to isolate the coil by removing the ground wire from it and then trying for spark. If you can get spark without the ground wire attached, then your coil is good and you have an electrical short to ground somewhere in the machine, such as a bad on/off switch or some other thing you'll have to determine; which can be difficult. Best of luck to you.

Hello! There is a wiring multiple between the four coils of the Red and Black (+12 and Ground) wiring that may have opened up during the head replacement...On Coil #1...Pin #3 is a Red wire and on Pin #2 is a Black wire...It is the same on Coil #2...Using two safety pins...Push the points into the Red and Black wires...First on coil #! then #2...Set your meter to read 12 volts...Clip the (+) meter probe to the safety pin in the Red wire and (-) to the Black...Turn on the key...12 volts must be present...You can check the other two coils that are firing...More than likely those two will read OK...This is a preliminary test to insure #1 & #2 have the proper voltage...Send a comment with results and I'll take it from there...Guru...Saailer

Check the coil itself,or replace it.The e c m sends power to the coil,12 volts,but it also breaks the ground side of the coil to load it,to fire on time.

12 volt 8n ford will not fire, no spark at first plug


Take the wire off the coil and check the wire for voltage.while it is disconnected.
If there is voltage now....... the problem is in the dist or coil.
Pull the dist and check for something grounding the system.
Are the points opening?

If there was no voltage in the resistor to dist wire....install a new wire.

TIP. Be careful how you set the coil onto the dist.
