Question about Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard Motorcycles
If your bike has been converted to a Crane ignition, all you have is the Crane unit, two spark plugs, two wires, and a coil. Seems you've replaced everything else so the unit is all that is left.
Now, before you replace the unit, you see there are two wires on the hot side of the coil. Make sure you have battery voltage to that side of the coil. A test, take your plugs out and lay one on the engine where you can see it. Turn your ignition switch on, then turn it off. You should see a single spark when you turn the switch off. If so, you're electrical wiring and coil are alright. Your unit is bad. If you don't get a spark, you are not getting voltage to the coil for some reason.
If you are not getting power to the coil, make sure the "Run/STOP" switch is in the right position. If it is, you'll need a schematic to trace the voltage back to the source. I have a schematic for a FXDWG. If you want a copy, send me a personal e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send one to you. This forum will not allow for a file over 150Kb. Remind me of what you need.
