Looking for a way to test if a stator/flywheel or big old-style coil is not working good _enough_. Coil was bought new and is the huge kind found on some 60s and older bikes attached with a large clamp. This is on a 64 Lambretta Cento. Have a cleaned up, points filed/cleaned stator with all continuity tested with multi-meter. New wiring harness with all connections tested on ignition circuit. Grounds all verified and grounded to frame. Verified zeroed voltage from engine to plug-cap and then when kicking it over seeing variation in voltage, but won't make a spark in the plug (tried multiple to be sure). Wondering what I should check next and how... don't have a spare coil since this is the unusual type.. wondering if I could try the more common type found on large-frame models or if there is a reason these bikes had the stupidly big coils (other than cheap availability when made?). And if that doesn't work, some method to test if the stator/flywheel combo is in the condition it should be. Maybe needs re-magging?
