Well here goes,

Got in the motor it started up and went - not a problem.

Went to move it again later started up and nothing, starter motor kicked in but no spark. Checked the coil and there is 12v going in to the coil which drops to 8 on turnover. There is however no spark coming out of the king lead to the dizzy. Have tried a new HT lead and nothing. So has anyone got any ideas could this be the coil gone. The coil also has an amplifier box it sits on which is connect direct to the Dizzy..

All help welcome

If the battery is good then you might check your live and earth connections. 8V sounds rather low to me - indicative of a flat battery or inadequate wireing.

Would agree, perhaps exagerated if the coil is starting to become weak also.

Coils are cheap, worth replacing IMHO.

Do you have the starter motor cranking 12v take off fitted? If not its worth fitting one.
